Italian citizens who wish to obtain permanent residence status in Panama must meet the requirements set by the National Immigration Service of Panama.
To apply for permanent residency, Italian citizens must submit the required documents, including a criminal background check, a health certificate, an employment contracty, proof of Italian citizenship, and proof of financial solvency, among others. They must also pay the corresponding fees and complete the necessary forms.
Once the application is submitted, the National Immigration Service will review the case and determine whether the applicant meets the eligibility criteria. If approved, the Italian citizen will be granted a permanent residency permit, which allows them to live and work in Panama.
It is important to note that permanent residence in Panama does not automatically grant citizenship. To become a Panamanian citizen, Italian citizens must meet additional requirements, such as residing in the country for a specific period and passing a naturalization exam.
