The President of Panama announced that on or after October 1, 2017, Venezuelan nationals traveling to Panama must have a valid entry visa. Until then, Venezuelan nationals can continue to enter and stay in Panama without a visa for up to 90 days. A decree confirming this information is expected during the next few days.

Venezuelan nationals who hold an Australian, Canadian, UK or U.S. multiple-entry visa valid for at least one year from their entry into Panama are exempt from the requirement if the visa has been used to enter the country in which it was issued.

What This Means for Employers and Foreign Nationals
Employers will need to make arrangements to obtain the appropriate entry visa for Venezuelan nationals traveling to Panama on or after October 1, 2017.
