The short answer to that question is, “Yes.” A visa and passport are required in order to visit Panama. When preparing to travel to Panama, double check the expiration date of your current passport if you have one. It must remain valid for at least for 3 months after arrival. If it will expire within that time, or come close, it’s best to get it renewed. Occasionally there’s a need for additional stamps in your passport. So ensure you have at least one blank page remaining for use. Yellow fever vaccinations are currently required in order to enter Panama. Your medical professional can help you with these, and any other vaccinations you may need. If you are planning an extended trip and expect to carry more than $10,000 with you, be aware that upon entry and exit, the amount will need to be declared to customs.
