Message from U.S. Embassy re Executive Decree 590


Recommended Posts

I received the below message tonight from the U.S. Embassy in Panama:

Dear Wardens:

Based on multiple inquiries from U.S. citizens in Panama regarding Decree No.590 dated December 28, 2016, the Consular Section contacted the Panamanian Servicio Nacional de Migracion (SNM or Panamanian Immigration Office) for further clarification on the length of time U.S. Citizens are able to stay in Panama as tourists.  The SNM confirmed that U.S. citizens (as well as citizens of the UK, Canada, and Australia) are still allowed to enter Panama without a Panamanian visa and they can stay for up to 180 days as tourists. 

For more information regarding this matter, please visit the SNM’s Twitter account, which is available at the following link:  https://twitter.com/migracionpanama?lang=en

Kind regards,




Stephanie Espinal
