On 8 April, the Government announced steps towards a gradual and careful reopening of normal activities in the Faroe Islands. With regard to travel to and from the Faroe Islands, the advice remains the same.  All Faroese citizens and residents with a permanent address in the Faroe Islands who are currently overseas on a short-term basis are advised to return to the Faroe Islands as soon as possible. All other non-essential travel should continue to be avoided.  In addition, the authorities strongly advise anyone arriving in the Faroe Islands from overseas, regardless of nationality, to go directly into home quarantine for 14 days.
