Full text: Iceland 1930

Though not necessary at present, it is safer for every foreigner who 
intends coming to Iceland to be in possession of a valid passport, to 
prove his identity, if required. But there is for the time being no 
obligation for the subjects of any country to have their passports 
Aaccording to Law No. 10, May 18th, 1920, respecting the con- 
trol of aliens, the government can forbid foreigners to settle in lce- 
land or reside there: 
If they cannot prove or make it appear probable that they are 
capable of procuring the means of livelihood for themselves and 
heir dependants without receiving poor relief during the first two 
years of their stay in Iceland; 
if they are suffering from a contagious disease, in consequence 
of which the Head of the Medical Profession (the Landleknir) 
may consider it advisable to forbid them to settle in the country; 
if they do not state or if they misstate the business that brought 
them to Iceland ; 
if they have come to Iceland for the purpose of engaging in ac- 
tivities which by the Minister of Justice are considered unlawful, 
dishonourable, or dangerous to the State or the public, or if their 
business is at all of such a nature that their stay in the country 
may be looked upon os dangerous or detrimental to the interests 
of the State or the public; 
if they have been expelled from another country for reasons 
mentioned under 4; 
if, in the country where they resided before, they have been found 
guilty of some act regarded as dishonourable by the general public, 
or if they are wanted by the police there for breaking the law.
