As of May 1, 2019, members of Efling working for Reykjavíkurborg have a right to claim an educational grant for their citizenship exam.

Generally, exam and certificate costs, etc, are not supported by the vocational training funds, and other funds do not give grants for citizenship exams.

Mímir – Símenntun manages registration and provides further information. You need to take this exam to be able to apply for Icelandic citizenship.

On the exam

An exam in Icelandic for applicants for Icelandic citizenship will be held twice a year, in spring and fall. The exam corresponds to the final stage of the basic Icelandic for foreigners course (240 hours), according to the Education Ministry’s curriculum.

Further information can be found on the Mímir homepage.
