The Expat Panama Chapter welcomes you!

¡Hola! and a heart-felt welcome to the InterNations community for expats in Panama! Our international network caters to your specific needs and supports you in relocating to and putting down roots in Panama. Living abroad in a foreign country is definitely a great intercultural experience, but typically brings up a lot of questions for expatriates Panama: ʺWhat is the best international school for my kids in Panama?ʺ, ʺHow do I find a job for my spouse in Colón?ʺ or ʺWhere in Panama City can I meet fellow expats and compatriots from my home country?” Just to name a few examples…

InterNations aim is to help you, as an expatriate, in becoming part of the Panama expat community and exploring the Panamanian way of life in all its aspects: From enjoying the traditional sancocho to celebrating Dia de los Martires.

Next to Panama we host several more communities in North & South America, e.g., our network of China Expat. Or you might be interested in our Expatriates Bahrain community which is also fairly active.

Enjoy the Panama Expats Living

With attractions ranging from the Valley of the Flowers in Chiriquí to the Miraflores locks of the Canal Zone, Panama fascinates expatriates and globetrotters of many nationalities every year. The growing expat Panama community is, however, mostly drawn to the country by the urban growth of Panama City and its political as well as economic challenges, e.g. in the construction industry. Whether you move to and live in Panama for professional or private reasons, you’ll surely take with you lifelong memories of great international experiences and intercultural exchange.
