Today the Republic of Panama offers several types of visas that grant temporary, permanent and even short-term residences. Nonetheless, our clients prefer more stable solutions, so they seek to obtain a Visa that grants them permanent residence.
But why Panama? The answer is simple: Panama has it all, warm weather throughout the year, beaches, mountains, good food, great internet and air connection, but above all it has stability, since it is a proud member of a select group of Latin American countries (Chile, Mexico, Brazil and Peru) that have Investment Grade.
In addition to the above, when doing business from Panama, your income is not taxable in Panama, provided that such income comes from a foreign source. What does this mean? This means that Panama has a Tax System that is based on the Territorial Tax Principle. This principle means that only income from Panamanian sources is taxed.

The first step is to ensure that your entry into the country is legal, for this you must have a valid passport for at least 6 months (if you are going to apply for a permanent residence visa), financial solvency, return air ticket and a tourist visa (if required for your country).
