If your final destination is Panama and you don't have the COVID-19 test when you arrive, you will be subject to a rapid test at the airport before check-in at immigration, whose cost will be the responsibility of each passenger. The cost of the test is USD 50.00.
Depending on the result of the test, the following measures will be applied:
- Negative result: you must not perform mandatory quarantine.
- Positive result: you must perform mandatory quarantine in a hotel hospital designated by the Ministry of Health. After 7 days you will be tested for antigen, if the result is positive you will have to finish the 14 day quarantine and if the result is negative you will finish the quarantine.
If you are in transit through Panama and will be staying within the international area, you must have the required COVID-19 test for your final destination, performed at your point of origin.
If you are in transit and intend to enter Panama (leave the international area), you must have the requirements for entering the country. This includes the presentation of the COVID-19 Swab/PCR or antigen test certificate with negative result, performed up to 48 hours before the flight departure time.
