According to the immigration regulations in the Republic of Panama, the irregular immigrant who requests voluntary return to their country of origin or residence will have to pay a fine of fifty US dollars for each month in which they have remained in this condition. Additionally, an entry ban shall be imposed, ranging from two to five years, and the individual must depart Panama within seven calendar days, except in cases of duly proven force majeure.

The irregular immigrant who can prove marriage to a citizen of Panama or who has a Panamanian minor child, provided they fulfill their duties as a spouse or parent, shall pay a fine of up to a maximum of one thousand US dollars and shall be exempted from the impediment of entry to Panama.

Only minors, individuals with profound disabilities, individuals aged eighty-five or older, homeless people, terminal patients, or those eligible for humanitarian reasons may be exempt from the aforementioned fines.
