Panama/Temporally Import RV-truck


Hey Dianne,

In april we are going to Panama. But on 12 april we are flying to the Netherlands for 5 month. So our temp. import  permit for the truck is not long enough (90 Days?). Are there possibilities to let the truck in Panama for say 6 months? We think of giving the truck in custody by customs? Or by a safe warehouse where we get papers to show to customs. Or is it possible bij entering Panama to get a 6 month visa, a 6 month insurance and therefore a 6 months valid temporally permit for the truck?

with greeting Marita van Loenen en Paul Smit

Hi Paul & Marita,

His Name is Keith Woolford ( we call him canadian Keith).His email is
Buena suerte!
