48 hour arrival notification requirement now for PanamaIf you are interested in a crewed yacht charter for Panama, contact Paradise Connections Yacht Charters.
Yachts contemplating being in Panama or wanting to transit the canal any time soon should know of a change in regulations.
Joining other countries of the Pacific like Fiji and Australia, Panama is now requesting that yachts notify their arrival into Panama at least 48 hours before their arrival.
It is worth remembering that this is the MINIMUM, so that it is possible to notify the authority before leaving your previous port of call.
There is a new official document, which can be downloaded and printed out and either scanned and emailed, or faxed to the Panama authorities. To access the document, click here.
Full information about all aspects of the requirements can be obtained on the website: www.amp.gob.pa
