Bringing samples with you for the expo as carry-on or checked-in luggage into the airport will create delays at the airport. You may do so, but the process is complicated.

  • Customs of Panama and the expo customs agent Arturo Arauz S.A. recommends exhibitors ship their items through DFL, FEDEX, or UPS to avoid delays at the airport when bringing the items with you as carry-on.
  • If you bring items with you please be prepared with the following:
    • Please bring with you a commercial invoice of your items to present to customs upon arrival in the airport in Panama.
      • **State on the invoice that the “Items are not for re-sale. For promotional use only / Los productos no son para reventa. Para uso promocional solamente.” **
    • Send your arrival information to Arturo Arauz (customs broker) for airport assistance.  Note there is a charge for all their services, contact them directly for details.
    • If your flight arrives after 9:00 PM your merchandise will have to remain in the airport until the next day.
    • If you pay customs duties on your merchandise you will be allowed to take the merchandise where you choose while in Panama.
    • If you do not pay the customs duties/taxes then a customs agent must accompany you the ATLAPA Convention Center.  The merchandise is not allowed to leave the Convention Center unless duties are paid at the airport or at the convention center.
