Passengers must upload a negative COVID-19 test (PCR or antigen) in the health declaration form up to 72 hours before entering Panama.

Additionally, the passenger must present the negative test upon arrival.

Passengers who meet requirements 1 and 2 (vaccination and negative test) from Non-High-Risk countries will not need to carry out a second COVID-19 test at entry or to quarantine.

If the traveler does not have a negative COVID-19 test performed a maximum of 72 hours before traveling, it will be mandatory to undergo testing at the country’s entry points. The passenger must cover the cost of this test. If the test is positive, the passenger must comply, at their own expense, with the quarantine established by the MINSA.

The website is not English speaking friendly. I change it to English and as soon as I try to do anything, it changes back to Spanish. Why is this needed if we still have to show a vaccine card and negative COVID test?

I commend them for looking out for the welfare of their people unlike some other countries. I'm not mad at them. Thanks for caring. This is why they don't have issues like other countries. The people there respect authority.

All of this for a flu bug with a 99.7% survival rate. You have a better chance of dying from bad food at a restaurant.

This is poorly written. Can a vaccinated traveller enter Panama without a covid test and take the covid test at the airport?
