New regulations have now taken effect allowing remote workers to apply to stay in Iceland for up to 6 months as remote workers and bypass Covid bans on travel from the US and non-Schengen countries. Conditions have to be met and hoops must be jumped through but we're here to guide you through the process!
Work from Iceland offers a free initial consultation where we’ll go over the basic legal requirements allowing you to remotely work in Iceland for up to 6 months. Consultation is free but there will be a deposit to start the process. Only when your application is approved will we charge the remaining fee. Once our services have been retained we allocate you a dedicated agent who will guide you through the paperwork you need to supply in order to be approved for a remote worker visa waiver. Our work includes liaising with immigration authorities, The Foreign Ministry and the Directorate of Labour. We will also help make sure that your paperwork is flawless before being submitted for review, maximising your chances of a successful application.
In addition to the above we will help you find suitable housing for your time in Iceland, negotiate fair pricing and make sure you arrive to a home you can settle into with all the amenities you require. The package includes help with arranging short or long term rental cars at discounted rates, finding suitable childcare if needed, dealing with issues arising with your rental property, and support with any and all services you require or need while in the country. We will be on hand to plan exciting day trips and adventures off the beaten track, recommend and book restaurant visits to make sure you always have up to date local knowledge. You can call us if you hit a language barrier or need help with paperwork, medical or legal issues. We will also do our best to put you in touch with peers you may want to connect with in Iceland using our own connections. By signing up for the concierge package you will also receive membership to an exclusive private members club. The club is the perfect place for those seeking privacy and a unique atmosphere to enjoy a glass of wine.*
Regardless of which package you choose you will be invited to small gatherings 1-2 a month hosted by Work From Iceland where you’ll meet others using our services. These events will adhere to whatever Covid-19 restrictions and mandates may be in place at the time.
*Membership allows you to book a number of meeting rooms free of charge as well as smaller rooms for quiet work. Coffee and water are free of charge. New members are currently not being accepted due to Covid-19 restrictions but these will hopefully be lifted soon.
