Where you can apply for a visa

Embassies and Consulates issuing visas on behalf of Iceland. Except for the Embassies in Beijing and Moscow, Icelandic embassies and consulates do not issue visas.

If you intend to apply for a visa for travel to Iceland in one of the following countries, you should contact an embassy or consulate in the respective country. Please note that many embassies use service providers for receiving applications. Applications are submitted at Visa Application centers, but visas are issued by the embassies. Information is on the website of the applicable embassy. In most cases the embassies and consulates are authorised to issue visas without consulting the Directorate, but if they have questions, e.g. on the authenticity or purpose of travel of the applicant, the applications are forwarded to the Directorate, which will then decide on the granting of a visa. If all required documentation is supplied and it is deemed that no further documentation is required, the processing time for a visa is approximately 2 weeks.

Information on how to apply for a tourist visa is here.

Countries indicated by a * issue long-term visas (D-visa) on behalf of Iceland. All other countries on the list issue tourist visas (C-visa).
