It is much easier to immigrate to Panama than it is to immigrate to many other similarly-situated countries. Panama makes it easy to apply for and receive a visa, permanent residency, or citizenship. Here are some of the options available:
-Retiree visa. If you are retired, at least 18 years old, and have proof from a foreign legal entity that you’ll be earning a monthly income of at least $1,000 USD for the rest of your life, you’re eligible to retire to Panama. If you have dependent children who will be living with you, increase that amount by $250 USD per month, per child.
Friendly nations visa. If you’re a citizen of a friendly nation and can prove your financial solvency and economic or professional ties with Panama, you can apply for a friendly nations visa. You can prove financial solvency by depositing $5,000 USD into a Panamanian bank account. To establish economic ties, you can form a corporation registered to do business in Panama.
Reforestation investors visa. If you’re interested in rebuilding Panama’s rainforests, you can invest $80,000 USD in a reforestation project, and that will allow you to obtain a visa and Panama citizenship.
