Overseas travel

  • If you intend to go on vacation (holiday), you must inform the Directorate of Labour and you will be taken off the benefit register while you are on vacation.
  • If you go abroad, you must inform the Vinnumálastofnun before you leave. You will not be entitled to draw unemployment benefit abroad unless you have been issued with an U2 certificate authorising you to look for work in the European Economic Area.

If you intend to look for work abroad, it is a good idea to start by looking at www.eures.is and talking to a EURES advisor at the Vinnumálastofnun
