Panama extends validity of residence permits for foreigners

Resolution No. 636 of January 27, 2021


Through Resolution 636 of January 27, 2021, Panama’s National Immigration Service extends the validity of residence permits issued to foreigners, which expired on March 13, 2020, to June 30, 2021. Any expired permit or stay during this period will not generate fines due to expiration.


The processes include:

  • Provisional permit cards
  • Non-resident visas
  • Judicial Stay Cards
  • Immigration Regularization Cards
  • Tourist stays


Birth and marriage certificates previously issued until June 30, 2021, and that have expired during the period from March 13, 2020, to January 31, 2021, will be recognized as valid.
