Iceland has announced that, effective immediately, the country is open to tourists who have been vaccinated with one of the EU-approved COVID vaccines (ie Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, or Johnson & Johnson/Janssen), or who can prove that they have had COVID and now have antibodies. Details about admission requirements are on the country's health website.
This is sure to become a trend among European countries as they roll out vaccines and get their case umbers under control. Only about 10% of Iceland's population has received at least one dose of the vaccine (vs 23% in the US), but case numbers are currently less than 9 per million people (vs 165 in the US).
If you are itching to travel now, Iceland could be the opportunity you've been waiting for. Give Bryan a call if you'd like to plan a trip.
