Visitors to be fingerprinted

The National Immigration Service has reported that, starting this week, it will begin fingerprinting all visitors to the country.

"This system seeks to strengthen the security measures for entry into the country," the agency said.

Visitors will only be fingerprinted once. The measure will also apply to foreigners living in Panama.

The change will mean that foreign residents will have to use the immigration line reserved for tourists and not native Panamanians.
