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 from Louisville, Kentucky and moved to Panama in 2011 to finish a degree in International Business. I enjoyed the hot tropical weather and the lifestyle on offer in Panama City so much that I decided to make it my permanent residence.
