The administrator of the Authority for Government Innovation of Panama (AIG), Luis Oliva, announced as of this week, the issue of verification of the income of people arriving at the Tocumen Airport will be transferred to the National Migration Service, with which they will no longer have to go through a post of the Ministry of Health (Minsa).
He explained that through this transfer the objective is to make the process much easier for passengers.
"This week begins the transition from Health to Migration, it will be a totally natural process where people will no longer have to go through the Ministry of Health post but they can go directly to Migration where we have integrated the solution that we designed for the Ministry of Health, which has been in operation for almost a month, which has been modernized so that we can make it easier for users,” Oliva explained in the Flor Mizrachi Question program.
He also added that the purpose of this is that the Ministry of Health can make decisions before the passenger arrives in the country, "so I believe that this is a great advance, since this system passes to Migration".
It is worth mentioning that it was previously established that passengers entering the national territory by air, land or sea must present the Affidavit of Digital Health, prior to boarding at the airline, the port of embarkation or the company that carries out the transport.
Affidavit of Digital Health is a requirement that is required of passengers with an interest in entering Panamanian territory and that they must complete 72 hours prior to boarding.
“With the form ready and validated, when they arrive in the country, the QR Code issued by the digital link viajes.panamadigital.gob.pa is scanned, which shows all the information that is required to enter the country," said at the beginning of August, Carlos Jurado, manager of Passenger Services at Tocumen Airport.
