China to Iceland: Everything You Need to Know

China to Iceland: Everything You Need to Know

Subject: Visit Iceland from China

 

Iceland is a member of the Schengen Agreement and a valid Schengen visa is required to go to Iceland. Once the applicant has obtained a visa from any Schengen country, they can travel freely in all Schengen countries during the validity period of the visa. When the destination is more than one country, you should apply for a visa to the embassy of the destination country where the stay is the longest. If you stay in two countries for the same time but first enter Iceland, you should apply for a Schengen visa at the Icelandic Embassy.

All Chinese (excluding Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan) require a visa before entering Iceland or other Schengen countries.

If you have already held certain types of residence permits or re-entry permits issued by other Schengen countries, you will not need to apply for a visa to enter Iceland or other Schengen countries.

If you hold a residence card issued under the free movement legal framework in Europe and the United States, you do not need a visa when entering Iceland.

Note that even if you hold a short-term Schengen visa, it is still up to the immigration border inspection department to allow entry. Having a visa does not guarantee that you will be able to enter the Schengen country.

At present, the Icelandic Embassy has authorized short-term visa services (including travel, friends, business, culture and sports, ADS visas) to the VFS Iceland Visa Center (Beijing), and the Visa Center accepts visa applications nationwide.

The Icelandic Embassy in China only accepts visa applications from holders of diplomatic and official passports, as well as families of citizens of the European Union and the European Economic Area.
