I am traveling from Camaroon to Barbados. I am Nigerian. There is a 14 hour layover in Panama. Can I bypass the transit visa requirement and stay in the airport terminal or the Copa Lounge?
According to the IATA a transit greater than 12 hours requires a transit visa for Nigerian citizens (see below for screenshot). HOWEVER, you are exempt from this requirement if you have any of the multiple entry visas from the countries mentioned below (and in picture):
- Korea (aka South Korea)
- any EU member state
