Foreign nationals who work for foreign companies in telework can now apply for a long-term visa that allows them and their families to stay in Iceland for up to six months.
A regulation amending the regulation on foreigners to this end, has already been signed by the Minister of Justice.
The amendment applies to foreign nationals who do not need a visa to travel to Iceland. In order to be granted permission for such a stay, the person in question must demonstrate an employment relationship with a foreign company, income and health insurance.
Further information for applicants will be published on the website of the Directorate of Immigration shortly.
