Iceland applied for EU membership in 2009 and commenced negotiations the following year. The possibility for Iceland to gain EU membership has become much more promising. Even before its application for membership, the country had established special relations with the EU concerning the migration of its citizens. Having entered the European Economic Area (EEA) agreement, Icelanders, like other citizens of the member countries, are free to move and settle anywhere within the EEA. When EU was enlarged in 2004 with the addition of the Central and Eastern European countries (CEE), the legal framework for free movement was extended to the people of CEE. This paper presents the facts on migration in and out of Iceland between 1994 and 2010. It will examine the causes for these facts, showing how they influence the institutional development of Iceland's labour migration.
