All applicants for Icelandic passports must apply in person at the Consulate. Applicants under 18 must be accompanied by their parents/legal guardians. Note that Icelandic Consulates do not accept general passport applications, but they can issue emergency passports.

What to bring to your appointment

Children under 18:

  • Old passport
  • Parents' passports
  • Consent form, signed by parents. Both parents should accompany their children. If both parents attend the appointment, the form can be signed and witnessed at the Consulate. If for some reason only one parent can attend, the form must be signed by both parents and two witnesses prior to the appointment.
  • Birth certificate showing the name of both parents, if applying for a child's first passport.

First passport for Icelandic citizens born abroad
Children born abroad must be registered with Registers Iceland (Þjóðskrá Íslands) as Icelandic citizens with an Icelandic ID number (kennitala) before they can be issued with a passport. Contact for further information.

An Icelandic citizen born abroad, who has never lived in Iceland, loses Icelandic citizenship when reaching the age of 22. This does not apply should be person become stateless by losing Icelandic citizenship. A person may submit an application before the age of 22 to the Icelandic Directorate of Immigration to retain his/her citizenship. Contact for further details.

Emergency passport
The Consulate can in genuine emergencies issue temporary emergency passports for children and adults and each application is assessed on an ad hoc basis. Emergency passports are not biometric and are not accepted everywhere so please check with the Embassy of the country of your destination.

The requirements for applying for an emergency passport for children are the same as for regular passports.

Lost and stolen passports
The loss and theft of passports should be reported to the police without delay. Bring your police statement (Denuncia) from the guardia civil plus any other ID you may have to the consulate. We will fill in the relevant paperwork and contact the authorities to let them know.  If you find your passport after it has been reported lost or stolen, it can no longer be used.

Extension of passport validity
As of 24 November 2015, Icelandic passports can no longer be extended.
