Japan Issues Visa Exemption for Panama

Effective April 1, 2024, Japan has implemented visa-free entry for nationals of Panama.

Panamanian nationals holding valid, ordinary passports may enter Japan without obtaining a visa for a short-term stay not exceeding 90 consecutive days.

This waiver does not apply to entry for the purposes of seeking employment or exercising a profession or other occupation (including public entertainment and paid sporting activities).

Japan now has visa exemption arrangements for nationals of 71 countries.
