It is not against any rule of soccer if a goalkeeper leaves the penalty area. He has the same rights and privileges on the field of play as any other player, except that he gets the added privilege of handling the ball within his own penalty area. It is only against a rule if the goalkeeper is handling the ball with any part of his hand, arm, or shoulder when leaving the penalty area; it will be a handling foul, direct free kick to opposing team from just outside the penalty area where the GK carried the ball, and possibly a caution (yellow card) if the referee believes the act was unsporting conduct.

Penalty kicks are when an offensive player is fouled inside the penalty box. Then a player from that team will kick the ball from the penalty spot.

The ball must go completely over the line for the goal to count.


What is the pass back rule in soccer?

The so-called "Back Pass" rule means that the goalkeeper cannot handle the ball, even within his own penalty area, if it was deliberately kicked to him by a teammate.

Note that a penalty kick can never be awarded for a goalkeeper's handling.
