If you are going to work for an Icelandic company and live in Iceland for more than 3 months you need to apply for a confirmation of your right to do so. You have to fill out this application, sign it and bring it with you when you report your move to Iceland along with your passport or travel ID card. Passport and travel documents must be valid for at least 6 months from the day you hand in your application. Supporting documents, if any, must be originals. Certified copies will be made at the registration office.
If you fulfill the requirements for staying in Iceland for more than 3 months you will be registered in the Icelandic population registry with a domicile in Iceland and you will receive a registration certificate. Note that registration and ID No. is free of charge and can only be assigned by Registers Iceland. ID No. without registration of a domicile in Iceland (system ID No.) gives you limited rights.
