I am sitting here in Canada awaiting the arrival of my pensionado visa - applied for in mid-January. I think I will have to go to Panama when it arrives for a short visit for a picture. I am not ready to make the move right away, still need to work for a while to prepare.
My question is - are there any residency requirements (initially or long term) to maintain the visa status? I could ask my lawyer of course but I don't want to bother her until we reconnect when the visa arrives.
