The point is being missed. What Keith is saying is that the "expensive Jubilado process" is one of several residency visas that serve as a vetting tool. Going straight to an E Cedula would result in no vetting whatsoever of permanent residents. In all the complaining about how difficult and expensive that initial step is, has anyone considered that the alternative would be to welcome criminals and persons of insufficient means to contribute to the country's economy but, rather,  be a drain on its limited resources?

Marie suggests that it would be nice to skip the jubilado visa process, which is expensive, and go straight to the E Cedula. But it is the jubilado visa (and other indefinite residency visas)  that weeds out persons unsuitable for residency. Without this vetting, Panama would stand the risk of being inundated with undesirables.

Una canasta de deplorables?

Appointments, he said, will be at the agreed time, so punctuality is required.

Let's wait and see how this works in a country with a manana culture.
