Iceland will let tourists from other countries that are safe, like Norway, skip corona testing and quarantine.

In other words, this means that Norwegians travelling to Iceland will be exempted from the country’s quarantine and testing measures from the 16th of July, writes Dinside. 

This exemption also includes tourists from Denmark, Finland, and Germany.

-” Our decision to let tourists from these four countries enter without unnecessary precautions is a result of our analysis and information that is available to us from these countries.”, writes Throlfur Gudnason, Chief Epidemiologist on the government’s own website. 

He explains that the countries that are exempted from their Corona measures have a low amount of cases and slow spread of infection in their communities. 

At the same time, it is still a requirement that the traveler has not visited an area that is considered as a high risk area during the last fourteen days.
