Business visitors to Iceland typically use a local version of the Schengen C Visa, unless they are visa ​exempt based on their nationality. The Schengen Area​ limits stays to 90 days in a 180-day period.

The main work authorization categories are the Work and Residence Permit for Temporary Shortage of Labour, for temporary projects where no suitable local or EU staff is available, issued for up to one year; the Work and Residence Permit for Qualified Professionals, suitable for foreign workers with expert knowledge necessary for the local employer, issued for up to two years; and the Work and Residence Permit based on a Service Agreement, for specialized service providers where the home employer has no local place of business, issued for up to six months.​

Detailed Immigration Snapshots, Document Lists and Process Guides are available to clients on request.
