This residency status is ideal for those interested in living in Panama and requires the applicant to establish a proven investment for at least US$160,000 in Panama. This immigration program includes applicant, spouse and any children under 18.

Once the visa petition is filed, a provisional residency permit, valid for a period of two years is granted to the applicants. At the end of the two-years period, the applicant may apply for the permanent residency. The permanent residency permit grants the applicant an additional foreign resident permanent ID Card and the right to apply for Panamanian Nationality after 8 years (which includes the initial 2 years of temporary residency).
