Panama Visa – How To Apply For A Panamanian Visa

GENERIC VISA INFORMATIONDoes Panama sound like your next destination? If so, you will not need to obtain a Panama visa for tourism and business purposes. However, if you are traveling to Panama on an official trip, you will need to obtain an official visa. Also, you will have to make sure that your current passport is up to date. Below are some guidelines to help you verify if your passport is up to date.

Check Passport Validity- Many countries mandate travelers to have a certain amount of validity time on their passports before they can enter the country. Each country’s required validity time frame will vary, some may require 6 months, while others may require 3 months. Verify the details of passport validity with the Embassy of Panama.

Blank Visa Pages- Countries abroad will require a minimum of (2) blank visa pages when you enter a country. This will let any stamps that must be put in your passport book to be stamped to help Panama immigration officials keep track of your length of stay. Travelers may face problems if there are not sufficient blank visa pages in their passport books.

Transit Visa- Sometimes when traveling abroad on a flight that will be stopping in another country for you to join to a flight en route to your journey’s end where a transit visa will be required. You will have to inquire about your flight specifics with your airline company.

Regarding an official visa, applicants must provide their original, signed United States passport, as well as (1) approved passport photograph.
