Panama Entry Requirements

Book your Airport Transfer
From Tocumen International Airport To Your Destination

It’s not difficult for tourists to enter Panama. Tourists must show the following documents to the Inspector of the Immigration and Naturalization Service of the Ministry of Government and Justice:

  • International boarding pass, completely filled out.
  • Tourist Card or Visa, properly authorized.
  • Plane ticket, for return trip to home country or next destination.
  • Demonstration of economic solvency, no less than five hundred balboas ($500.00) or the equivalent in credit card, bank reference, letter of employment or travelers checks, unless the nationality requires a different amount. (Resolution 1017 bis of March 22, 2000).
  • Passport or travel document, valid for at least 6 months from the date of receiving the visa or card.
  • In some cases the Immigration Inspector may request a payment voucher from the hotel where the traveler will be lodged

Panama divides tourists into two groups – those that need a tourist visa, and those that only need a passport.

Citizens of the following countries only need a passport to enter Panama:
  • Argentina,
  • Australia,
  • Austria,
  • Belgium,
  • Canada,
  •  Chile,
  • Colombia,
  • Costa Rica,
  • Cyprus,
  • the Czech Republic,
  • Denmark,
  • Estonia,
  • Finland,
  • France,
  • Germany,
  • Great Britain,
  • Greece,
  • Hungary,
  •  Iceland,
  • Ireland,
  • Israel,
  •  Italy,
  • Japan,
  • Luxembourg,
  •  Mexico,
  • the Netherlands,
  • New Zealand,
  •  Norway, Poland,
  • Portugal,
  • Slovakia,
  • South Korea,
  • Spain,
  • Sweden,
  • Switzerland,
  • Singapore,
  • Taiwan,
  • and the United States.
Stamped Visas:

Let some travelers enter Panama several times throughout the year. This type of visa is only available through a Panamanian embassy or consulate, and the Panamanian authorities decide the length of the stay, which is usually 30 days per visit. Anyone who is eligible to visit Panama on a tourist card can apply for a stamped visa instead, although citizens of some countries are required to have a stamped visa. These countries include the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Georgia, Peru, Russia, Ukraine, Vietnam, and Zimbabwe. As with other things in Panamanian officialdom, this list is subject to change.

Authorized Visas:

The most restrictive type of tourist visa. Like the stamped visa, this kind is only available through a Panamanian consulate or embassy. The officials will choose to either approve to decline the visa application, and will determine the length of stay. The majority of countries on this list are in the Middle East, Asia, Africa, or eastern Europe. These include Bangladesh, Cuba, Haiti, India, Pakistan, China, and South Africa, although the list is subject to change. The requirements can vary by consulate, so it’s a good idea to check with one before beginning the application process. It’s recommended to begin the application process at least a month before the start of travel.
