Travellers welcomed back to Panama after seven months

Panama welcomes back tourists from around the world this week, seven months after flight routes were shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic.

As the Latin American region begins to open up, the Central American destination resumed international flights on Monday, October 12.

A negative COVID-19 test is required on arrival or a seven-day quarantine in a hotel provided by the Panamanian government at no cost to the traveller.

With sandy beaches, ancient ruins, wildlife and the famous canal, the country has reopened having received the stamp of approval from the World Travel & Tourism Council. The country’s authorities have also implemented health and safety protocols throughout the country.

Minister Ivan Eskildsen said: “After closing our borders to travellers in late March, we are excited to safely welcome visitors back to Panama. The new health and safety protocols reflect our continuous hard work and dedication in protecting both Panamanians and our visitors, and through our efforts, have earned the World Travel & Tourism Council Safe Travels stamp of approval. Our beautiful country, rich in nature, biodiversity and cultural heritage is once again ready to be discovered.”
