From 15 May professionals arriving in Iceland, including filmmakers, will be eligible for a modified quarantine with specific limitations and criteria. This allows companies to request an exemption from home quarantine provided they comply with extensive requirements around their environment and enact safety procedures on production sites.
No later than 15 June 2020 further easing of restrictions is planned. Travelers are then expected to be given a choice between a two-week quarantine or being tested for the virus upon arrival, or otherwise proving that they are free of coronavirus infection.
Icelandic scenery and expert production service crews have played an important role in major films and TV programs in recent years. With a varied landscape that can inspire both mythical worlds and strange planets, Iceland can assume many roles.
The Himalayas, a Pacific Island, Siberia, Minnesota, Greenland, postapocalyptic earth and Scandinavia are only a few examples of the places Iceland has stood in for. See examples of the films shots in Iceland.
Advanced infrastructure and experienced Icelandic production companies make sure foreign producers can reap maximum benefit from shooting films, television programs, music videos or commercials in Iceland. The full range of professional services available includes assistance with locations, crew, equipment, casting, studios, permits if needed, etc.
