INVEST IN THE LAND OF LAVA, springs AND MIDNIGHT SUN
While it may have been the Norwegians who built the first houses on the breathtaking island located where the Arctic Ocean meets the North Atlantic, it is actually geographically closer to Scotland and mainland Europe than it is to Norway. This puts Iceland in a fantastic and unique position. A member of the European Economic Area, a full-blooded Norse/Viking history, geographical ties to Scandinavia and the UK, as well as a modernised and socially aware society surrounded by stunning scenery make Iceland top of the list for young expats.
There are currently no restrictions for foreign nationals to buy property in Iceland. However, non-Icelandic citizens will have to undertake a few extra steps in the purchase process - such as applying to purchase a property through the Ministry of Justice.
