EuroBrits Iceland The AIRE Centre is here to help UK nationals who moved to Iceland before 1 January 2021 secure their residence status now that the UK has left the EU. If you require assistance with this process, contact us at [email protected]. 31 March 2021 marks 90 days since the end of the transition period. This is a significant date for UK nationals who have been in Iceland since 1 January 2021 and who do not intend to become residents there as it marks the end of the 90 day period that you are allowed to stay in the Schengen area as a British citizen without a visa. However, for those UK nationals who were legally residing in Iceland before 1 January 2021 this limit does not apply. You should ensure you are registered with Registers Iceland and apply for a residence card as soon as they become available. Information Sheets We are producing a series of information sheets designed to provide practical information to UK nationals seeking to secure their residence in Iceland. We want these sheets to be as helpful as possible and want to know if they have supported you in obtaining a residence permit or if they have assisted you to help someone else do so. Please help us to improve our service by giving us feedback on these resources HERE.
