Welcome to the Faroe Islands

We hope that you have been looking forward to visiting our country as much as we have been looking forward to inviting you back.

In order to prepare our tourism industry for the return of visitors, Visit Faroe Islands has joined forces with the best medical capacities in the country to train our leisure and meetings industry in ensuring a safe stay for our guests.

Companies and organisations that work in leisure and meetings tourism in the Faroe Islands have taken part in an educational course titled: “Corona Virus – Protection and Preventive Measures in the Tourism Industry.”

Staff that completed the course were given a “Safe to Visit” badge. The badge demonstrates that they have been taught to follow public Covid-19 health guidelines and have chosen to adopt the guidelines in their company or organisation.

The Faroese tourism industry is committed to doing everything in our power to reduce the risk of the virus spreading. However, we also need your help. We hope and expect that you will familiarise yourself with and follow the Covid-19 guidelines issued by the Faroese health authorities.
