Iceland opens up to vaccinated US and UK tourists
Minister of Justice Áslaug Arna Sigurbjörnsdóttir announced that the country will open up to tourists from the U.S. and UK who are fully vaccinated.
“The minister of health and I both suggested changing our regulations regarding certificates from outside the Schengen Area. These changes are substantial … Most of our tourists come from (the U.S. and the UK), and they have a great impact on our economy, and they are well underway with vaccinations, using vaccines that the (European Medicines) Agency has approved," Sigurbjörnsdóttir said
Certificates of vaccination with vaccinations that have already been approved by the European Medicines Agency will be accepted, according to the minister. The list of vaccines that are supported can be found on the ministry of health's website.
The North Atlantic Agency's general manager, Gya Gumundsdóttir, called this a "very important step" for the cruise industry.
