Like much of the world, Embassy Reykjavik’s Consular Section is operating at reduced capacity due to Covid-19 precautions and restrictions.

Visa holders currently in the United States should understand that, if they decide to depart the U.S., there is no guarantee they will be able to return in a timely manner. Our available appointments are limited to the beginning of December and then restart January 4th.
