Althingi may grant Icelandic citizenship by legislation. If an applicant does not meet the conditions of the Icelandic Nationality Act (No. 100/1952) to be granted Icelandic citizenship, he/she can request for his/her application to be submitted to Althingi. Applications are generally submitted to Althingi twice a year, in spring-time and in December.
The deadline for applying for Icelandic citizenship this spring is March 3rd 2017.
