It´s easy applying for Panama Residency in seven steps:
Provide our law firm with all of the required documents and sign a Special Power of Attorney which authorizes us to act on your behalf with Panama immigration.
Register with the immigration department of Panama the passports of your family or members who will move.

Panama immigration will issue a Temporary Permit (Visa) and a Multiple Entry-Exit Visa.
Panama immigration will later issue a 2 year Temporary Permit (Visa).
Panama immigration issues a Permanent Residency Permit (Visa).
Five years later, the applicant can apply for a naturalized Panama citizenship and when approved, the applicant can apply for a Panama passport.
The applicant does not have to reside in Panama during this time period in order to qualify as a permanent resident or a naturalized citizen.
It will be necessary a short trip to Panama in order to process the Temporary Resident Permit, the Permanent Residency Permit, and to become a naturalized citizen and to apply for a Panama passport.
