Family member in Iceland
If you intend to stay in Iceland longer than three months and you are a citizen of a country that is not an EEA/EFTA member state, you need a residence permit. The Directorate of Immigrants issues the residence permit.
A residence permit based on family reunification is granted to the closest relative of a person residing in Iceland. The requirements and the rights of residence permits on grounds of family reunification can differ, depending on the kind of residence permit applied for. Further information about residence permit based on family reunification can be found on the website of the Directorate of Immigrants.
