Panama is the country, where I spend a part of the year and have some business interests.  So I have some experience about life in Republic of Panama and  share it here, in my blog posts.

Panama City, Panama.
Panama City, Panama.

I am also a permanent resident of Panama. A few years ago (in 2012)  in Panama was  issued a Presidential Decree 343 declaring that citizens of 22 friendly nations could apply to become permanent residents in a fast track manner. This “fast tracked” visa has become to be known as Panama’s friendly nations visa.  In 2015 my husband  (american citizen) and I (russian  citizen and a  green card holder) got our panama residency cards.

So this part of my blog could be interesting for those who are thinking about spending vacation in Panama, living in Panama, opening a bank account or establishing a residency in “República de Panamá“.
