Hello, I am planning to move to Panama in January Protected content . I've lived in the city before when I was young, but I lived on the military base. My dad is a Panamanian citizen who was naturalized as an American citizen, and I am trying to find out information about whether or not I will need a visa, and what kind of visa I will need since my father is a citizen. I am not planning to work in the country because I have a remote job based in the USA which I will be able to still hold while living in Panama, so this is where it gets confusing.
Also, does anyone have any insight on how long it takes to find an apartment in the city? Most likely the San Francisco area? I am coming with my dog, so I will be renting a short term place while I search for an apartment and am not sure how long I should book the short term apartment for (2 weeks-1 month??). If anyone has any information or advice it would be greatly appreciated!
