The Faroese Government is constantly monitoring developments and will revise travel measures if and when necessary. It is, therefore, of utmost importance that all travellers to the Faroe Islands stay updated about travel guidelines.

REGARDING PERSONS TRAVELLING TO/VIA DENMARK
When travelling to the Faroe Islands, you are entering the Kingdom of Denmark. Please check the official entry guidelines for Denmark before making plans to visit the Faroe Islands. This also applies if you are just passing through Denmark in transit and the Faroe Islands is the sole destination of your travel. The official guidelines for entering Denmark can be found here.
As of 15 November 2021 all travellers will have to present a valid Covid vaccination certificate, a valid corona test (no older than 72 hours) or an antibody test showing they have previously been infected with corona. Those who are not able to present any of this documentation will have to be tested upon arrival in the Faroe Islands.
Restaurants, bars, gyms etc will require documentation of Covid vaccination, Covid test or antibody test.
COVID TEST ON SECOND DAY
We strongly advise ALL travellers to take a follow-up test on the second day of their stay (more information about free public testing service here, or contact Thetis for private testing). Vaccinated and previously infected travellers are also asked to take this test.
Please note, that you have to book an appoinment for the test. It is not possible to show up without an appointment.
ALL travellers should be particularly careful during the first two days of their stay until they have received a negative test result.
Non-vaccinated and never infected individuals should stay away from large gatherings where the infection can spread quickly. For example, large birthdays, parties, nightlife, church ceremonies, and large sports and music arrangements. This means, among other things, that tourists can visit restaurants in controlled circumstances.
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms related to Covid-19 – whether these are common or uncommon – and/or have been in close contact with someone who has been infected by Covid, please call 1870.
It is of utmost importance that all travellers to the Faroe Islands take appropriate precautions while travelling. Upon arrival, particular care must be taken and the public health guidelines must be followed closely.
For information about travel from your country, please seek information from the respective authority in your countries of residence.
