They can barely get them done in 6 months. We were 9 days away when notified that the permanent visas were ready!

No mention as to repeated 90 day tourist visa's. Appears that Panama like Costa Rica is trying to do away with virtual tourism. It's gonna cost them a lot of money. Like shooting yourself in the foot. 


For the residents and visitors of Boquete Panama
