Current Rules In The UK And Iceland For Travellers From India
India is on the UK’s red list now. If someone has been in India during the last 10 days before arriving the UK, the entry of that person to the country will be banned. The rule is applicable to fully vaccinated travellers as well. Only British or Irish nationals or passengers with residence rights in the UK are exempted from the ban.
Also, India is on Category-1 of the high-risk areas list of Iceland. Citizens arriving from these countries need to quarantine in a facility on reaching Iceland. But with the special package of Pure Luxe, fully vaccinated travellers can skip the quarantine. They will need to present a negative PCR test report upon reaching Iceland. Additionally, they will have to undergo a COVID-19 screening test at the border. If the test comes negative, they won’t have to quarantine any more.

There Is An 11-Nights Work From Hotel Package In Iceland Too
The charter flight is scheduled to fly from Mumbai to Reykjavik on June 25, 2021 upon necessary government permissions and clearances. All passengers travelling to Iceland and the UK need to hold a valid Schengen visa. Reportedly, Pure Luxe won’t be arranging the visas. Also, people opting for the packages will have to book their own return journey tickets. There is also an 11-nights Work From Hotel Package at KeaHotels Reykjavik Lights Hotel, Hotel Arctic Comfort or a similar hotel in Reykjavik. The Explorer, Luxe Explorer and Self Drive Explorer packages will allow travellers to explore the Blue Lagoon, the volcanic eruption site, the Reykjavik city, the Black Sand Beach and more in Iceland.
