Certificate of citizenship
A certificate confirming Icelandic citizenship. In addition to the citizenship the certificate confirms full name, ID number, gender and domicile.
Processing will take up to 4 business days.
A certificate of citizenship is issued for Icelandic citizens. Foreign citizens can also apply for this certificate to get confirmation of non Icelandic citizenship. Dual citizenship is not confirmed.
Registers Iceland now issues electronic certificates that are available in individuals’ postbox on Ísland.is. Electronic certificates are fully equivalent to paper certificates and are easy to forward as needed. The electronic certificates have an electronic signature from Registers Iceland that is very secure and trackable.
When processed the electronic certificate will be available in the postbox of the person named in the certificate. The exception being when parents or legal guardians order certificates for children or when death certificates are ordered. In those cases the certificate will be available in the postbox of the person who ordered the certificate.
