The island nation of Iceland is an incredibly popular location for summer tourists from around the world. It will be opening up on June 15th and on that date people entering the country will either undergo a COVID-19 test at the airport or self-quarantine for 14 days.
This can be hailed as good news for a lot of tourists, but not people from the United States.
Icelandair has added four round-trip flights between Boston and Iceland during the second half of June — on June 17, 20, 24 and 27 — however, tourists from countries outside of Europe’s Schengen zone, including the United States, will not be permitted entry until July. But that plan is not concrete and subject to change.
This is not surprising seeing how the United States has the highest number of COVID-19 cases in the world and it doesn’t look like it will change anytime soon. Iceland is high on my bucket list but it looks like it will be some time before I make any plans to go.
Is Iceland on your bucket list?
