By DON WINNER for Panama-Guide.com - This from Hunter Schultz - "Spent a few minutes at Migracion this am with a friend doing the tourist visa dance. Bottom line: Once your 90 days are up, you leave. No extensions. At least for Americans and Canadians anyway. There were more countries on the list so they are not targeting just a few. That's what they told us and it's printed on a little sign next to Window number 1. Cheers, Hunter" It's pretty clear now that the 30 - 60 thing is no longer an issue. You can come in as a tourist and stay for a maximum of 90 days total. There is no longer a need (as the law says) to apply for an extension at the 30 day point. But, when you hit 90 days you either have to have applied for some other status (or get the hell out.) Thanks for the update, Hunter.
