  2. How to Keep Your Panama Visa as a Part-Time Resident With the current restrictions implemented on international air traffic, border closures, and controls due to COVID-19 it is difficult for many temporary, part-time or permanent residents in Panama to travel to Panama and thus maintain their current permanent residency status. Most foreign residents in Panama know the golden rule of "having to travel to Panama every two years to maintain your resident status". But are there any exceptions to that rule? Can I lose my residency in Panama? The answer is, "Yes." In fact, the law e

  5. The President of Panama created a new Golden Visa for Panama to encourage foreign investment in the country. Unlike the existing immigration categories, this new permanent residence permit has four important advantages: 1. VIP counter for the reception and analysis of the Golden Visa. 2. Processing of the application in a maximum period of 30 working days. 3. Option of presenting the application without personal presence in Panama. 4. One-time application with the right to permanent residence permit and E-card (“cédula”). How is the new Golden Visa different f

    Great day at the market today. We welcomed Global Food Providers, and Inside Panama real Estate. Between 9am and 12 midday, we had just over 200 visitors.

  7. Bit late I think. I also think HCQ was not meant to treat near-terminal patients, but to help those in the initial stages.

  8. Here is our current list of vendors for the first full week, after being restricted to half strength for the first week. As you can see we have a great selection of food, produce, coffee, handicrafts: Exactly what you would expect from BCP. All of this is possible even with the social distancing restrictions in our new location, and in the future we would be able to have many more, all under one roof. You can also drop your mail off for posting by one of our volunteers in the USA. We have stamps available

  9. While there were times when we thought the market seemed slow yesterday, we realized that having such a large new indoor space can be deceiving - we kept a tally and had over 150 visitors come through during a time when we know many are not yet ready to come out and mingle! We had a great mix of new vendors and old favorites, and will add even more vendors next week. Watch for more photos and announcements in the next couple of days.

  11. Dear Jacqueline, the International Airport of Tocumen will install three (3) control points inside the passenger's terminal to perform the rapid tests (if applicable). The cost of the rapid tests has not been determined with the Ministry of Health yet. It also has not been defined whether Tocumen Airport or the Ministry of Health will be the responsible authority for contracting the laboratories that will be installed within the terminal area to analyze the rapid tests. Safe travel, Abel

  13. Dear Christine, Currently there are two types of diagnostic tests: 1. Molecular (PCR) tests and 2. Antigen tests. Both are acceptable to the Ministry of Health in Panama. There are several new diagnostic test methods available, including rapid tests (point-of-care diagnostic tests) where results may be available in minutes. These rapid tests (POC) may be molecular (PCR) or antigen tests. For further information see the Coronavirus Testing Basic published by the FDA: https://www.fda.gov/media/138094/download Best regards, Abel Gomez

  14. I know they probably mean well, but the people planning and executing (and naming) these open markets are making a huge mistake. They seem to be trying to leverage the reputation of the Tuesday Markets that BCP organized and managed for years. Why don't they grow up and quit trying to confuse people. Name it something like Tapout Market or Rotary Market or some such?!.
