Anyone who has traveled internationally before knows that it is imperative that you have a valid United States passport. Without a passport, you will not be allowed to leave the country for any reason. If you are already overseas, and then lose your passport, you will not be allowed back into America until you obtain a replacement US passport. Unlike in the past, even young children are now required to have their own individual passports. In the past, infants could travel with their parents without needing their own passports. However, to curb child abductions, this is no longer the case.

It is a Geothermal Spa that features steamy waters and wonderful saunas. It is situated in a field of lava on the Revkjanes Peninsula. The water in the lagoon is created by the geothermal power plant Svartsengi. This water is then vented from the earth near the lava flow and is used to power turbines that produce electricity. After the water goes through the turbines the steam and hot water flows through the heat exchanger, from there the water flows into the lagoon for those to enjoy the spa whether recreationally or for medical purposes.
Due to the mineral rich waters that have high levels of minerals like silica and sulphur, the spa is recognized for healing certain skin ailments, like psoriasis. The average water temperature in the lagoon is 98–102 °F. In addition to being a spa, it also is the location of a research and development facility developing cures for skin diseases.
