Costa Rica and Panama in plans to shelve passports

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

Officials from Costa Rica and Panama are studying a proposal that would eliminate the need for a passport when traveling between the two countries.

Costa Rican Public Security Minister Mario Zamora traveled to Panama on Monday to analyze the feasibility of the project, and Panama’s public security minister, José Raúl Mulino, said they also will propose during the meeting the creation of a “common area” between the two countries.

Costa Rican President Laura Chinchilla said her administration “is fully willing to advance this issue in the name of friendship.”
