Monthly Retirement Amount

The retiree or pensioner must receive a monthly amount of $1,000, at the official exchange rate of their currency. You can present this monthly retirement certification "in your currency," as the corresponding conversion to the dollar will be made in Panama.

You must register before applying for residency, which takes at least 1 day, and our team will perform certain procedures (notaries, stamps, legalizations, medicals, etc.). In addition to the above, the retiree must leave their passport deposited in immigration for at least 2 days in order to obtain the "multiple exits" stamp from the country and thus avoid future fines.
