Important Information about Expired Auto License Plates and Arrival Back in Panama via Tocumen Airport


Recommended Posts


Moratorium on Expired Vehicle License Plates Extended, and
the Updated Bio-Safety Entrance Protocol at Tocumen Airport
As the "reopening" of Panama gets underway from the Covid-19 pandemic there are a lot of changes taking place. This email provides information about two aspects of life in Panama that may affect you.
First, ATTT (the government agency that administers vehicle registration, and matters related to owning and driving vehicles) has announced that enforcement of the expired automobile license plates ("placas" in Spanish) will continue to be suspended until the end of October 2020. "This [moratorium] measure applies [only] to vehicles with a license plate whose expiration date corresponds to the months of July, August, September and October, since the plates from previous months are available to taxpayers for their withdrawal." For more details, please visit the following link on the Chiriqui.Life (CL) website (scroll down to see the English translation of this news article). Any updated information will be posted there.
Second, the bio-safety entrance protocol at Tocumen Airport has been updated. One of CL's members has posted a very good article outlining the new entrance protocol that becomes effective on October 12th, when Tocumen officially reopens for routine commercial passenger traffic. For more details, please visit the following link on the Chiriqui.Life (CL) website. Any updated information will be posted there. Thank you to Abel Gomez for his excellent summary of this important issue.
