Panama to require visa for Venezuelans amid crisis

Wednesday, August 23, 2017


Panama’s president says his country will begin requiring an entry visa for Venezuelans beginning in October as their homeland slips deeper into crisis.

President Juan Carlos Varela said that recent events in Venezuela forced him to act to preserve Panama’s security, economy and job sources.
Varela also said Panama will regularize the status of the approximately 25,000 Venezuelans already in the country for humanitarian reasons.
