Visas Panama divides tourists into two groups – those that need a tourist visa, and those that only need a passport.
Government officials may say something different from the government website, and some rules seem to be in constant flux.
Arrival Airports Most visitors get to Panama by air.
Panama’s main international airport is the Tocumen International Airport (Aeropuerto Internacional de Tocumen), which is 25 kilometers (15 mi) east of Panama City.
The Sixaola-Guabito crossing is generally used by travelers coming to and from Bocas del Toro.
The Río Sereno crossing is used infrequently and sometimes does not allow foreigners to cross. The Interamericana ends at the town of Yaviza in eastern Panama, some 80 km (50 mi) from the border—it is here that the infamous Darién Gap begins.
