30% decreased the entry of visitors to the country in April
The growth of the entry of visitors to the country, which had been growing since January 2021, stopped in April.
In January, the entry of 26 thousand visitors was reported, a figure that increased to 28 thousand 612 in February, while in March there were 43 thousand 326 entries. However, in April the movement returned to 30,301 visitors, which represented a decrease of 30% compared to the previous month. In total, 128,246 visitors entered Panama in the first 4 months of the year.
At the end of March, the Government imposed restrictions on the entry of visitors from South America, a region that in recent years contributed 40% of visitors to Panamanian tourism.
Tourist unions have requested that the quarantine restrictions for travelers from the south be eliminated, in addition to allowing entry to travelers who enter with a negative test, without the need for another test at the Tocumen International Airport.
