Panama and Costa Rica: Faster Border Procedures

The Cortizo administration is preparing a bill to create the Integrated Control System at the border with Costa Rica, with the aim of simplifying the transit of people, vehicles and goods between the two countries.

Wednesday, August 7, 2019

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Panama reported that Alejandro Ferrer, head of the institution, with the support of the Director of the Customs Authority of Panama, Tayra Barsallo, presented to the Cabinet Council, the draft law approving the framework agreement to implement integrated binational control systems at the border crossings between Panama and Costa Rica (Paso Canoa, Rio Sereno and Sixaola).

The statement specifies that "... This bilateral legal instrument fulfills international and regional integration commitments, in addition to facilitating trade, reducing transport costs and increasing the competitiveness of national productions."

According to Panamanian authorities, the plan is that the Integrated Control System begins to apply in the province of Chiriqui, in Paso Canoas, then at the border crossing that is located in Bocas del Toro.
