Clarification of the March 27 Covid -19 Restrictions Announcement:
On March 29, the President of Panama issued a decree clarifying the regional COVID-19 restrictions previously announced on March 27.
Effective March 31, travelers arriving in Panama who have been in or who transited through any country in South America must have a negative COVID test within the last 48 hours. Such travelers will also be tested upon arrival at the expense of the passenger. If the person tests positive, he or she will be transferred directly to a hotel-hospital. If the person tests negative, he or she will follow a 5-day at home-quarantine and will be tested again by MINSA at the end of quarantine.
The Ministry of Health’s decision to implement the new travel restriction occurred after a resident of Panama, who had recently traveled to South America, tested positive for the new P1 SARS-CoV-2 variant hours after presenting a negative COVID test at the airport.
