Student Residence Permit for Non-EEA/EFTA Citizens

Non-EEA/EFTA citizens who intend to study in Iceland must apply for a student permit at the Directorate of Immigration before arrival. Please visit the website of the Directorate of Immigration for detailed information on the application process.


Applicants from countries outside the EEA/EFTA are not allowed to enter Iceland without a permit. However, if you do not require a travel visa to visit Iceland (for example, citizens of the United States and Canada) you may enter the country while your residence permit application is in process.
