Residence Permit Issued

Upon arrival the applicant should make sure to go as soon as possible to the Directorate of Immigration to register into Iceland. Please bring your passport. The below three things need to be pursued before the residence card can be issued.

After registering at the DOI, an appointment at a relevant health clinic need to be made for those citizens who are required to have a medical examination.

When the applicant has been photographed and the medical exam certificate has been submitted to the Directorate of Immigration, the residence permit is issued and a residence permit card ordered. The issuing time of the residence permit card takes on average around 10 days and is sent by snail mail to the address in Iceland stated by the applicant in his/her application.

If the applicant has not been photographed and/or had a medical examination within two months of his/her arrival in Iceland, the residence permit will not be issued and the applicant’s stay in Iceland will be deemed illegal.

Medical Examination

Those who need a medical examination need to make an appointment at relevant health clinics. Only specific clinics provide check up for residence permits.
