This weekend, three travellers who came to the Faroe Islands via Vágar Airport were denied entry to the country.

One traveller from Romania arrived on Friday and was sent back the same day, and a couple from Spain who arrived on Saturday left at noon the next day, the police told Portal.fo on Sunday.

The travellers were denied entry, because they came from high risk areas, and they didn’t have a so-called worthy purpose in the Faroe Islands. In this case, it does not matter whether the person tests negative for COVID-19 or not.
