I am a Nepali passport holder, right now in the Dominican Republic. I have a DR visa. Recently I thought of visiting Bolivia as a tourist. I can't find any direct flights to Bolivia. Do I need a visa to transit in either Panama or Colombia?

  • Welcome to the site. My edit was to make your question a bit more understandable; apologies if I have misunderstood. Am I correct that you are asking whether you need a visa to transit, or how to get one while in the DR, or both?

If you don't pass immigration in Panama you don't need a visa:

International travellers in transit in Panama do not require a visa provided they don't pass immigration and are staying less than nine hours.

A Colombia visa is not required:
