  1. The government of Panama has created over the years more than 50 immigration categories to facilitate the immigration of foreign professionals, investors, entrepreneurs, family members, or retirees. In recent years, Panama has become a popular emigration destination. The constant economic growth, the warmth of the locals, the pleasant climate, the extensive beaches, as well as attractive investment opportunities, and the US dollar as local currency are among the many advantages that Panama offers newcomers. The six most common residence permits in Panama, either as a part-time resident or
  2. When making a trip from your country of origin to Panama, each traveler or family traveling together has a limit of cash that they can take with them which is $9,999.99. If you travel with cash exceeding $10,000, and you do not duly declare it at Customs, the total amount of money can be taken away. This modality is called "Commission of a Customs Fraud Crime" or even smuggling. The reason is mainly that by not declaring the "extra" amount of money, the customs authorities assume that the intention is to harm the tax interests of the country or even to use that money for illegal purposes.
  3. Moving to Panama Do you want to move to Panama and want to take your household goods with you? The good news, domestic goods can be imported duty-free. But first of all, what are household goods, according to the Panama Customs authorities? The term household goods can refer to the bed, the washing machine, the dryer, the dishes, the dining room table, the sofa, overall the furniture and accessories of the home. The goods must be used and be seen used. Construction equipment, commercial tools/equipment, motorcycles, trailers, new items, and other non-domestic goods will be taxed. Wha
  4. Traveling to Panama: New Entry Requirements Starting October 12th Panama is reopening for international visitors, reactivating international flights, tourist activities, hotels, and more. At the same time, there are new entry regulations and COVID-19 precautions that all travelers must comply with upon arrival in Panama. Upon arrival to the country every national, resident or foreigner must present a negative PCR Test Certificate or antigen, no older than 48 hours. By complying with this measure established by the Ministry of Health of Panama, the traveler will be able to ente
  5. 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
  6. Three Month Extension of Migratory Status for Foreigners in Panama Panama’s National Immigration Service (SNM) is now open and taking new applications and appointments, but due to rules established by Panama’s Ministry of Health (MINSA), will only be operating at 25% capacity. Effective today, June 8, SNM started a 90-day period during which foreigners may submit applications to maintain or adjust their immigration status in Panama without incurring fines. This applie

  8. After the usual announcements at the beginning of the weekly BCP Tuesday Morning Meetings on May 1st, 2018, emcee Nikki Steele introduced Dr. Maria Ruiz for this well-attended presentation on the impact of immigration (North Americans, Venezuelans, Colombians, etc.) on the future of Panama, the upside and downside of the new relationship with China, and the struggle to move Panama from the third world to the first world, etc. Here is the meeting announcement of this presentation as posted on CL: Presentation Materials Click Here to download a PDF version of the presenta
  9. This is the seventh in a series of audio podcasts by Chiriqui.Life. The subject of this podcast is Dan Porter of Twin Wolf Technology Group. He describes himself as a country boy who found his passions to be (a) computers, and (b) casino gaming and poker. Dan first came to Panama City in 2009 under a contract to bring American-style casino gaming (especially poker) to Panama. He arrived with his wife of 35 years for the multi-year contract. Upon completion of that contract, he found that he liked Panama so much that he decided to stay, but in the Chiriqui highlands. However, his wife did not s
  10. Moderator preface: The following posts were split out of a different topic that was related to an Executive Decree of December 2016 that dramatically shortened the time that a tourist visa was valid in Panama. That topic then began to focus on Steven Walker and his family, and their issues of being barred from returning to Panama after a "border hopping" cycle at Paso Canoas. For more details on that topic, see the referenced citation that has been added to this posting. One side effect of that Executive Decree is that another expatriate with legal residency (@Twin Wolf Technology Group),
  11. Anyone considering making a border run to Paso Canoas to clean their Passport might want to hold off for a few days. At the moment there are about 300 Venezuelans stuck there who are being denied re-entry. http://www.tvn-2.com/nacionales/extranjeros-denuncian-migratorio-reingresar-Panama_0_4701279858.html
