If you have been in transit in an area, the infection rate of the original country/region of departure applies when entering the Faroe Islands. In this context, transit means that you have not been in contact with people in the transit country/region. For example, if the transit country/region has a high infection rate, it is crucial that you do not make contact with people there as this will result in the transit country/region being determined as your original country/region of departure when you arrive in the Faroe Islands.
