Panamanian government has created several laws which, depending on the
particular type of visa applied for, enable foreigners to obtain legal
temporary or permanent residency, work permits, and in some cases citizenship
and / or passports in the Republic of Panama. Most of these laws have
been created to promote foreign investment in the country which benefits
the local environment or local economy of Panama.

Many international investors and companies find Panama to be an excellent
location for investing in reforestation, manufacturing plants, assembly
plants, distribution facilities for import/export, software creation facilities,
call centers, and a variety of other business activities. Many times,
investors find that legal residency qualification is just an "extra
benefit" to the investments that they are making in Panama.
a second residency in Panama is useful for those who wish to:
Have a second home overseas in a tropical country where they can live
at or visit.
· Have a "safe haven" to escape to in the event of war
or any type of civil unrest that may threaten their family.
· Actually live in Panama permanently, perhaps after retirement.
· Relocate to a tropical, stable, safe country where it is very
economical to live in comparison with most other developed countries such
as the US, Canada, Europe, etc.
· Relocate to a more "tax friendly" country where foreign
earned income, capital gains, and interest income is not taxed.
· Relocate to a country where frivolous lawsuits are not recognized
by courts, and assets can be truly protected through a corporate shield,
without the risks of "piercing the corporate veil".
· Relocate to a country where one can begin business operations
economically, and without heavy restrictions, regulations, or taxes that
hinder the growth of the business.
· Relocate to a country where real estate is still affordable for
purchasing homes in the city or land at the beaches, mountains, lakes,
