Moving to Iceland

Home inventory, which includes household equipment, appliances and other personal artifacts, is duty free if moved to Iceland for migration purposes and certain conditions are fulfilled.

The concept "home inventory" is defined in the second chapter of regulation no. 630/2008 on various customs privileges. The general conditions for the immigrant to fulfill, in order to receive customs privileges, are also found in the same regulation.

Those who migrate to the country after living abroad, and have a vehicle with them registered there, can get a permit for temporary exemption from paying import charges. Generally, a driving permit for one month is granted.
