Tired of hoping the border every six months to renew your tourist visa in Panama? I did that for my first two years here and I’m finally happy to be a permanent resident now. I just completed the Friendly Nations Visa that was recently created and I’ll write a blog article soon about the entire process I went through for that. But in the meantime check out this info graphic that gives a quick summary of all of the residency options available in Panama.
I'm Joey, a guy from Louisville, Kentucky that packed up and studied abroad in Panamá at the age of 20 and haven't moved back since. What started as a semester trip to Panamá has turned into 7+ years of living in Latin America and becoming a full-time travel blogger.
