Official Faroe Islands Travel Advice

Mask Requirement

Mask is required to be worn in all public indoor, public transport and certain outdoor areas where social distancing is not possible.

Internal Restrictions/Closures

Measures have been put in place to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Bars and restaurants will be closed at 23 o'clock  until 31 October.

All employees in the public sector who do not deal with the most essential services should work from home. Staff will receive further instructions from their respective directors.

Children's activity centres, preschools and day care facilities will also close. Childcare will be offered to those who, for particular reasons, are not able to have their children at home during working hours.

Masks are required to be worn everywhere -- both indoors and outdoors.

Airlines & Transport

Air and sea borders have reopened. Airlines that fly to the Faroe Islands have implemented a set of initiatives to limit contact points on board flights and thus minimise COVID-19 infection risks.

Travellers are required to wear facemasks at all times at the airport. Only travellers and terminal staff will have access to the Terminal building.

Ferry services have resumed. Increased preventive cleaning and disinfection of “Hand Contact Point Hotspots”, such as door handles, access touch pads and telephones, has been introduced.

If a passenger arrives at the ship and shows symptoms of COVID-19 or has a fever, they will be refused entry.
