The Thai Consulate in Reykjavík can issue Tourist Visa to citizens of other countries than Iceland, provided they fullfill requirements. Requirements for documentation vary. All need to provide proof that they are registered in Iceland through Þjóðskrá. Please contact the hon. consulate if you are not a resident. See LIST OF COUNTRIES to find out what applies for your country. Your country of origin, inspite of an Icelandic citizenship may be of importance and may need up to 8 weeks of processing time. Please inquire. For more and full details consult the website of the Royal Thai Embassy in Oslo.
Holders of Icelandic passports can stay up to 30 days in Thailand without a visa. For longer stays than 30 days a visa is required. Pls note that more and more airlines are now prohibiting passengers to board flights destined to Thailand if their return ticket is after the 30 day permit to stay expires - eventhough it has been possible to pay a fine for each day of overstay at the airport in Thailand. Passengers have had to buy new tickets. Pls note that this is the responsiblity of the passenger.
