Should Lawyers Be Required At Immigration

All of the procedures for immigration to Panama, conducted prior to departure from our home country, were transparent, friendly and encouraging. Procedures upon arrival were demeaning, time consuming and completely lacking in customer service. We soon came to the conclusion that we wre "sport" to be made to jump through as many hoops as possible. We are glad we live here permanently now and do not have to deal with Immigration.
Panama could learn from Mexico where bilingual university student volunteers staff a desk where people can receive guidance as to forms, procedures and costs. A friendly smile, even if there is a language barrier, helps immensely.
I think the will to change within the department is now there, but there are a few vested interests that are interfering with progress.
