From January to June, the National Migration Service of Panama has approved 6,228 residence permits to foreigners. According to a report released on June 10, 2015, the ranking of applications is led by Venezuela, followed by Colombia, Spain, Italy and the United States.
And all that entry of foreigners can be easily perceived. To enter supermarkets, detect different accents and products so far, they were not common in the Panamanian market. But why? What attracts these immigrants?
Immigration is a significant social phenomenon. It reflects the economic performance of the country receiving expatriates. United States, for example, is the nation that attracts immigrants from the world. And people are not moved to that country simply because they want a change. They are in search of peace, quality of life and a better future.
What Panama offers?
Panama is a privileged country geographically. It is bathed by two oceans: the Atlantic and the Pacific, connecting the north and south of the continent. Maybe that’s why he became one of the most desirable portions of land in the world.
Panama’s economy is one of the most stable in the Americas. And in the last 10 years, Panama showed very strong growth. A report published by the World Bank, for example, has shown that Panama is the country with the GDP (gross domestic product) highest in the region. Moreover, we can not forget that the dollar is the currency most widely circulating world, which facilitates entry and foreign investment in the country is run.
Panama has a tropical climate and, therefore, the temperatures are high almost throughout the year. In the summer, which corresponds to the months January, February and March, the country’s landscapes look even more beautiful which helps to give a little color and life to the white-skinned foreigners.
Panama’s official language is Spanish and this is one of the reasons why foreigners love both Panama. I mean, that’s the second most popular language in the world, with 416 million native speakers. And although it is difficult, most tourists dominate or at least have enough for ordering a beer level.
5. THE SPIRIT
Many people do not know, but the Panamanian beers are the richest in the world. Most foreign visitors to Panama are eager to bring cans of the drink in the suitcase.
let’s face it. Panama has a very rich and appreciated cuisine. It is impossible to resist the stews, fried plantains, fish and savory rice with pigeon peas. The country offers a variety of restaurants with dishes from different countries, which makes foreigners feel at home.
In this narrow piece of land they are located important historical and tourist destinations. The Panama Canal, for example, is considered by many as one of the wonders of the world. It is an engineering feat that impresses both for its size and its operating mechanism.
Other major tourist spots in the country are the Old Town, Old Panama, the Darien National Park and the fortifications of Portobelo and San Lorenzo. All these sites were included by UNESCO in the list of Natural and Cultural Heritage Sites.
