Panama is a welcoming country that wants its guests to feel like part of the family. It’s got all the nature you could ever want in the form of clean, soft beaches, rich farmland, thick rainforests, and green mountains. It also has cozy small towns plus the modern and exciting capital of Panama City. The U.S dollar is Panama’s official currency.
There are several flexible options for people who want to stay in Panama long term. If you are from one of 50 “Friendly Nations” you can come and work with no problem. If you would like to retire in Panama, you simply need to show a monthly pension of at least $1,000 to receive a Pensionado Visa. This route also offers a bunch of discounts for things like healthcare and restaurant meals.
