Today, March 21st, is the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.
At 11:00 the staff of the Directorate of Immigration will take part in an action against racisim by joining hands around the building.
The Directorate will therefore be closed between 10:55 and 11:15.
The Directorate of Immigration closes at 12 o'clock on Friday March 10th due to renovations.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Under the new administrative practice of the Directorate of Immigration, individuals who are refused international protection may not return to Iceland for a certain amount of time if they do not leave the country voluntarily within a given time limit. This change is based primarily on the increase of applications for protection during the recent months. The Directorate of Immigration will assist as much as possible with the passage home for those who receive a time limit to leave.
