This is a shameless plug for Lizi Rose; probably the best Immigration Lawyer in Panama. She shepherded my Pensionado Visa through the labyrinth of Panamanian Immigration in just over four months. I don’t think it’s a record, but it’s a shorter period of time than some people I have talked to went through.
When Lizi walks into Immigration she owns the place. She takes no prisoners and doesn’t deal gladly with fools. She speaks absolutely flawless English. I should hope to be half as good in Spanish.
If you’re considering Panama as a retirement destination you couldn’t do better than getting in touch with this fine young lady.
