Panama extends the transit visa obligation for Cubans

The Panamanian authorities have extended the transit visa requirement for Cubans passing through their territory for three months, until next September. This measure, in force since March 8, caused hundreds of people to camp for several days in front of the embassy of that country in Havana.

The new decree, dated June 6, extends the visa application period to 30 days before the trip, unlike the previous one, which established 15 days. The cost remains the same, 50 dollars, and the procedure must be carried out at the Panamanian embassy in the applicant’s country of residence.

To do this, you must fill out a form accompanied by two passport photos, a photocopy of the passport, air reservation, a copy of the identity document of the country of residence and proof of payment of consular fees.

The extension also exempts Cubans who return to Cuba from visas, a provision in force since March 17, in the face of protests in front of the diplomatic headquarters, which did not make the crowd too happy either, since what they are looking for is to leave the island. .

The transit visa requirement affected all citizens who had planned to fly to Nicaragua via Panama with the Copa airline, the only airline that maintains connections between the Island and Managua and that since November, when the regime agreed with President Daniel Ortega the “free visa” for Cubans, became the main land exit route to the United States.
