As of Tuesday, June 6, Panamanians will no longer need a special visa to enter Canada, since the country is now part of the Electronic Travel Authorization Program, allowing citizens to travel to the country without a visa, as reported by the Panamanian Foreign Ministry.

With the Electronic Travel Authorization (-eTA) Program, the management time to obtain permission to enter Canada is shortened for all Panamanian citizens who have been granted a Canadian visa in the last 10 years, or who have a valid non-resident visa to the United States.

When applying, you must have a valid passport, complete the online form and pay $7 Canadian.
