travel languages

Spanish is the official and most widely spoken language of Panama. The Spanish used in Panama differs from the one used in Spain. Panamanian Spanish is the Spanish version used in Panama. This version bears similarities with the Spanish verbalized in the seaside areas around the Caribbean notably Cuba, the Dominican Republic, as well as Puerto Rico and the Atlantic shore of Colombia and Venezuela. Panama also has seven native groups which speak several indigenous languages.

Visit VisaHQ for country specific information.

If a visa is required, obtain it from the appropriate foreign consular representative before proceeding abroad. Allow sufficient time for processing your visa application especially if you are applying by mail. Most foreign consular representatives are located in principal cities and in many instances a traveler may be required to obtain visas from the consular office in the area of his/her residence.

Panama’s official currency is the balboa. The rate of exchange for the balboa has always been tied to the US dollar—one dollar equals one balboa. Panama does not, however, print its own paper currency and instead uses the US dollar as legal tender. Panamanian coins come in 1, 5, 10, 25, and 50-cent pieces. They are the same size, color, and weight as U.S. coins and both are used frequently. While shopping or eating out, you may see prices with either a “$” or a “B/” before them, corresponding the dollars or balboas. They mean the same thing and have the same value.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between an interpreter & a translator?

There is certainly a difference between interpreters and translators.

Interpreters work on projects that convert spoken material from one language to another the most common types include conferences, meetings, legal proceedings, and business negotiations, while translators translate written text.

What is the difference between consecutive & simultaneous interpretation?

Knowing which type of interpreting service you need for your project is a crucial element for a successful interpreting project.

Consecutive interpreting is where the speaker pauses after several phrases or sentences, allowing the interpreter time to relay the message to the audience. Usually consecutive interpreters are a popular option for informal and some formal occasions including: interviews, film sets, client-attorney meetings, medical, legal depositions, and photo shoots.

Simultaneous interpreting is when participants wear headphones and an interpreter listens to information and relays it while the speaker continues to speak. Typically, simultaneous interpreters are used in formal, large group settings including: large conferences, conventions, business or board meetings, diplomatic and other official business meetings, and tours.
