About the Panama Retirees and Pensioner Visa

The Panama Retirees and Pensioners Visa was created back in the eighties, to promote the residential tourism in the country, which got its peak in the last decade, keeping up to the present.

Under this residence program, the applicant is only required to present evidence of a monthly income and for life, of at least US$1,000.00 per month, or its equivalent if in another currency.

The referred income must be in the form of a pension or retirement, from a government agency or from an authorized and regulated retirement agency or private company, for which additional documentation shall be required.


The general requirements to apply for the Retirees and Pensioners’ Visa are:

  • Five (5) photos
  • Passport
  • Letter of retirement, from government office, stating the monthly income for life
  • Federal criminal record
  • Good health certificate issued in Panama
  • Sworn declaration form, fully answered and signed
  • Proof of domicile in Panama, through the utility bill and rental agreement, or letter from a hotel

If the applicant is applying with his or her spouse, an additional US $250.00 in the monthly income are required. The spouse must also present all requirements above, but the income letter. Joint income is also allowed, in which case both spouses must present their income letters.

Additionally, the Marriage Certificate (valid only for 6 months) must also be added to the application.

All documents originated abroad must be either apostilled (at the Secretary of State Office), or authenticated at the Panamanian Consulate in your country.

Holders of the Pensioner Visa can obtain a work permit in two ways; one is waiting to have 10 years of residency to request a non-expiring work permit. The second way, thanks to the Executive Decree 21 of May 2019, is requesting a renewable work permit valid for 3 years.
