Do we need a visa for travelling through Panama? The trip goes through the canal without disembarking.
British travellers do not need a visa for travelling through the Panama Canal on a cruise ship, whether you stop or not. If you sail through the canal without disembarking at any ports, your passport won’t be checked. If you do disembark at any stage you will be granted entry with a passport so long as it is valid for six months following your exit from Panama.
