Panama halves permit for foreigners

Thursday, January 12, 2017

The year-long temporary permit  for  foreigners to complete their procedures seeking  permanent or temporary residence in Panama has been cut to six months, starting  Tuesday Jan. 10. Since 2010, the term has been one year.

An executive decree says that immigration issues are resolved within six months, “so it is not necessary that the procedure  permit  has a validity for longer than that term".
