Home to the amazing Panama Canal, Panana has dropped all its entry restrictions for both vaccinated and unvaccinated visitors.
In addition to relaxing most visitor rules, Panama took a small step toward normalcy in July by removing the requirement that visitors wear face masks.
Latin America has begun to gradually relax its regulations. Argentina led the way by becoming the first country in the region to formally eliminate all covid restrictions in favor of freedom of travel.
Brazil, Argentina’s close ally, also lifted a nine-month-old restriction on anyone not wanting to be vaccinated.
Now it’s Panama’s turn to lower administrative barriers, following in the footsteps of its predecessors. As reported by IATA, the country no longer requires foreign tourists to have a valid covid entry card as of Sept. 15.
Panama has had stricter controls on the unvaccinated, although it depends mainly on tourism and maritime trade.
