Specialist work permit

In special circumstances, a temporary work permit may be granted to a non-EEA worker whom it is planned to send to Iceland in the service of a company that does not have a branch in Iceland.  Such permits are not normally granted for periods longer than six months on the basis of the same service contract. A service contract must have been made with a company in Iceland that includes a statement to the effect that a condition for the transaction under the contract is that a worker of the foreign company is to provide the service here in Iceland.
