Due to the fact that Iceland is a member of the European Economic Area (EEA), citizens of EEA member states can start working in Iceland without a work permit. If, however, they wish to stay in Iceland for longer than three months they must apply to the Icelandic Immigration Service to get a residency permit. If an EEA citizen has been accepted for employment, started to practice a profession or has set up a business in Iceland, a residency permit is granted to them automatically.
If you are a citizen of a country which is not an EEA member and you want to work in Iceland you should contact the Icelandic Embassy or Consulate in your home country to check whether you need a visa to enter the country and to apply for a work permit (which you will probably need in order to be able to work in Iceland).
> FINDING A JOB
If you are a citizen of an EU member country and you are looking for a job in another member state (either in Norway or Iceland), the European Employment Services (EURES) network can help you. You can find EURES departments, which specialise in international recruitment, through the public employment services in either your home country or in the member state that you wish to find work in. In each EURES department there is at least one Euro-adviser who can give you help and information on finding a job in another member state.
Local and national newspapers often carry job vacancies and the press is an important and useful way of finding work in Iceland. There are five daily Icelandic newspapers which carry job sections. You could try to look for vacancies in papers such as Bæjarins Besta, and Vísir all of which have their own websites.
