The emergency room is open 24 hours a day. You should bring any documents that are related to your health history and current medications. The wait can be several hours if the problem is not life-threatening.

If you aren't covered by your own insurance, and intra-governmental medical treaties don't apply to you, you will have to the full cost of your medical treatment yourself. If you are a resident of Scandinavia, you are covered. If you are from the EU/EEA, bring the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) with you to Iceland and present your passport at the hospital (to prove residence). If you are not otherwise covered, we highly reccommend you get some travel insurance.
