43 People Sworn In As New Panamanian Citizens

Immigration IssuesAt the end of each month, the Government of Panama swears in approximately 45 people who become residents of the Republic. The most recent event was held on Thursday, 28 June 2012. On that day 43 people were sworn in as new Panamanian citizens, in an event witnessed by Government Minister Jorge Ricardo Fabrega and the ambassador of Colombia, Maria Angela Benedetti Villaneda. In this most recent ceremony there were 15 Colombians and 15 Chinese. The citizens of these countries are those who most often acquire Panamanian nationality, according to statistics from the Interior. Others who benefited from this measure were born in Argentina, Canada, Chile, Cuba, Ecuador, Haiti, Honduras, India, Nicaragua, Pakistan, Peru, Russia, Ukraine and Thailand.

Nationalized Annually - So far this year about 792 people have been sworn in, according to Eva Samudio, of the Disclosure Department of the Interior. In 2011 a total of 559 people of various nationalities were sworn in as new Panamanians. Taking into account the country of birth or origin, the person can hope to get both nationalities, provided this is permitted by the laws of their home country. (Siglo)

Do you have any info as to how long these folks have been in line. My wife passed the test in December and several groups aparently have leapfrogged over her. Another possibility is that she has the wrong lawyer.
