You will need the motorcycle to be inspected by the Dirección de Investigación Judicial in Panama City no later than two working days before departure.
Arrive as early as possible at the vehicle inspection yard. We recommend being in line by 05:30am. Only a limited number of inspections are done each day, with numbered tickets being given out on a first come, first served basis only.
Once the inspection is complete, you will be given instructions to collect your paperwork at a later time from the main DIJ offices nearby.
The latest this whole process can be done is two working days before departure. They are only available Mon-Fri early in the morning, so if your departure date is at the weekend or on a Monday/Tuesday you will need to plan accordingly. You can do this earlier if you wish, however the papers they issue you with are only valid for 7 days.
