Thanks!

Official source, will also include those who can prove prior infection, but they don't provide the details for that.

@Something Fishy is going to like this news.

Quote
From 18 March this exemption will apply to citizens outside the Schengen area, including the UK and USA.
The Icelandic government has announced that all those who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 will be allowed to travel to Iceland without being subject to border measures, such as testing and quarantine. Until now, this exemption has only applied to those presenting certificates from the EU/EEA Area but will now apply equally to everyone who can provide proof of a full vaccination with a vaccine that has been certified for use by the European Medical Agency as well as requirements defined by the Chief Epidemiologist of Iceland and Icelandic regulations. Certificates from the the World Health Organization (WHO) (the International Certificate of Vaccination or the Carte Jaune/Yellow Card) are also accepted for vaccines the WHO has validated.

The exemption also applies to those who can provide valid proof of prior infection. Documentation on prior infections must be in accordance with the requirements defined by the Chief Epidemiologist.

It seems like we may all be misreading it, and the Iceland government only intends to exempt people vaccinated from border measures like testing & quarantine, and not allowing in foreign citizens who would otherwise not be allowed in.

Seems like just about anything will qualify

Certificates may be in paper or electronic format. Border control will evaluate whether a certificate is valid and will consult a representative of the Chief Epidemiologist (health care worker) as needed. The final decision of whether a certificate is valid is at the discretion of the Chief Epidemiologist. If a passenger presents a document that is deemed invalid, i.e. if any of the necessary requirements are missing, the passenger must, as other arrival passengers, undergo double testing with quarantine in between.

A vaccine certificate is required to include the following:

Be in the Icelandic, Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, English or French. A document in another language can be valid if accompanied by a certified stamped translation in one of the languages required.
First name and last name (as in travel documents).
Date of birth.
Nationality.
Passport number (or travel document number).
Name of disease vaccinated against (COVID-19)
When vaccinations were performed (dates)
Vaccination must be complete; see below the required doses for full vaccination for each vaccine.
Information on issuer of the certificate (supervising clinician/administering centre), with signature if the International Certificate of Vaccination.
Vaccine administered.
Manufacturer and batch/lot no. of vaccine.

Very possible, the earlier version exempting EEA vaccinations stated that it's only to waive testing and quarantine requirements, but passenger still needs separate entry permit, I'm not sure what the rules for that are.

***For the vaccinated, not the previously infected. I don't believe you've ever gotten pushback on that one.

I don't recall there being pushback for infected either once vaccines are readily available.

Maybe, but that's not what's being considered.

You’re correct. I’m not sure how omaat and these other websites didn’t catch that. Unless they have insider info that this will change but so far it is not the case and it will be a huge deal if it does since the EU wants to have a European policy for who’s allowed to enter.
