Panama to close doors to foreign workers

Monday, September 22, 2014

Panama is likely to close its doors to foreign workers after political parties and labor unions expressed concerns over the growing influx of undocumented migrant workers.

The upcoming Columbus Day on October 12 will see the last fair for issuing residence permits to foreign workers.

There is no data as to how many foreigners are working in Panama, but according to the 2010 census, the country is home to about 140,000 foreigners from 181 nations.
