Panama Is Reopening To International Tourism on October 12
Panama is reopening its borders to international visitors this fall, with new protocols in place designed to keep both visitors and residents safe.
Starting October 12, the country will reopen to international tourists from all countries, including the US, as long as they present the negative result of a COVID-19 PCR or antigen test taken no more than 48 hours before arrival. If it was taken more than 48 hours prior to arrival, the visitor will be required to take a rapid test at the airport at their own expense — approximately $30. Passengers will also be expected to complete an electronic affidavit before checking into their flight, agreeing to comply with all sanitary control measures.
