Immigration and work permits

In Panama, there are different ways to opt for residences and work permits. For us as lawyers, we can offer you the most favorable and convenient option for your case, it is necessary to know your history, and the reasons for which you have decided to come to live in Panama.

It is also important to understand that in our country, work permits go hand in hand with residence, therefore it is not possible to obtain a work permit, if you do not have a legal residence in Panama.
