Panama rolls out the red carpet for retirees in Panama. Panamanians and ex-pats enjoy discounts in just about everything in Panama. You can enjoy 25% off airfare to anywhere in the world! 25% off utility bills, 20% off at restaurants, 10% discounts at pharmacies, 50% off at movie theaters, and more.
Foreigners must have a permanent residency Visa to get the discounts. You can get the Pensionado discounts if you have the Pensionado Visa or the Friendly Nations Visa.
The Pensionado discounts are just one way you can live BETTER for LESS in Panama!
Are you supposed to be able to get the discounts while your permanent visa is in process when all you have is the temporary card to present? We have been able to get restaurant and hotel discounts but not from everyone. Most recently, Boquete sandwich shop said no.
Jackie Lange says
You are NOT supposed to ask for or receive any discount until you have your permanent visa.
