There is a global risk of terrorism. New Zealanders travelling and living in Canada are advised to take account of the terror threat level assigned by the Canadian authorities when making travel decisions. 

On 17 October 2014, the Canadian authorities raised their domestic threat level for Canada from Low to Medium.  This means security agencies assess a violent act of terrorism could occur. Internationally trained terrorists and groups and domestic-based extremists are the predominant threat. Terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq continue to plan attacks against the West.

Crime
Violent crime in Panama, including armed robbery and mugging, is not common but does occur.  There have also been reports of “express kidnappings”, where individuals are forced to withdraw funds from automatic teller machines (ATMs) to secure their release. To reduce the risk of this occurring we recommend you use ATMs located inside banks during daylight hours.
