Relocation & Immigration: Panama lawyers

Relocation & Immigration services

Panama’s modern infrastructure, warm, tropical climate, and low cost of living (outside of Panama City) attracts many foreigners. When you move across borders (or across the ocean), our firm can assist with the many decisions, hurdles and sometimes daunting steps that are required for relocation!  We happily assist individuals, families or businesses that are getting set up in Panama. We have extensive experience with employment-based immigration and family-based immigration.

Expats moving to Panama will find that the Isthmus has a high ranking when it comes to human development index. Panama is also known to have the biggest economy in the region: it relies mostly on the sectors of banking, commerce, tourism and trading. Our legal and relocation services are supported by our technology, bilingual secretaries, as well as our ability, expertise, and energy with which we approach your relocation needs.

You can expect to receive from Joan Villanueva up front cost analysis and quotes, clear instructions regarding the documentation that you will need, and advise regarding the challenges you will face on moving to Panama.   We can assist you whether it be with temporary permits, permanent residence or obtaining citizenship. We can also guide you through the documentation required for bringing your pets or help you find a relocation company to assist with moving.
