Iceland has amended its Foreign Nationals Act to loosen the requirements for several work and residence permits.
Background: The changes are intended to attract foreign workers from outside the European Economic Area and to retain students from outside the EEA who have completed their studies. The proposed changes were first announced in March after a working group concluded that Iceland needed more foreign workers to drive economic growth.
