Welcome to the webpage of Einangrunarstöðin Reykjanesbæ (Quarantine station for dogs and cat's arriving in Iceland)
Here you can get information about our station, arrivald dates and rates.
The Quarantine station in Hafnir, Reykjanesbær is located only 15 minuts from Keflavík airport, so after a long travel to Iceland your pet will be at the station in few minuts.
The quarantine station has the welfare of the animals in first place, with us they receive good care and our employees take care of the animals as if they were their own pets. Our staff do play, cuddled and sit with the pets frequently during the day, the animals do have a radio on during the day and the radio is off during the night.
We are lucky with our staff who have been in the dog and cat world for many years and are professionals in their careers.
We got it through after many years of waiting to use our treadmills for dogs and balance balls and one of our employee is trained in pet physiotherapy and has been taught how to work properly with the treadmill. All animals have the same right to use our treadmill. The treadmill is not suitable for all dogs , if the treadmill is not suitable we will find something else that the animal would like.
We also have one of the best dog groomer in the Iceland working at the station. She has a great and good knowledge of grooming and styling.
The veterinarian of the station is Björgvin Þórisson who works well with the animals. He is always available for the station and we have a long and good cooperation with him.
Owners are welcome to contact employees via phone and email as often as they would like to get information about their animals, also we will send photos if the owners request.
We do have a CCTV in the station for our employees to use.
Best regards, The staff at the Quarantine station.

In November 2015 The Icelandic Food and Veterinary Authority (MAST) issued new editions of certificates of health and origin for import of dogs and cats to Iceland.
Here is a link to MAST webpage and there you can read the news about the new permitted arrival time for pets on quarantine admission days.
The phone is open every day between 10am - 5:00pm
Owners of animals that should have arrived in april and june need to contackt us through e-mail : email@example.com if they want to change the arrival date.
Arrival dates for the year 2013 are now on our web site under the link "Arrival dates"
Given past experience, the decision has been made to tighten up on inspection of papers accompanying the animals. According to regulation 935/2004 originals should accompany the animal for both animal and original to be inspected in Keflavík airport. If the owner cannot provide the original the animal will be sent back to the country of origin. Owners are encouraged to put the originals in waterproofed envelope on the animal cage to speed up the processing of the animals in Keflavík airport.
