My husband's pension is not big enough

E-mail Print PDF

 This lovely letter came in from Natalie in Northern Ontario this morning. Roberto


Hello Roberto, 

My husband and I have been reading your website for the last week and learning so much about retiring in Panama. We live in Northern Ontario and would love to relocate to Panama. Unfortunately my husband's govt. pension isn't enough for both of us to get a Pensionado visa, in Canada we own a Bed and Breakfast and I am a hair stylist and Esthetician. Our dream is to move to Panama permanently and for myself to obtain employment in the beauty industry or even open another Bed and Breakfast in a touristy area. We keep hitting a lot of road blocks it seems and I guess my question for you is " Do you think its possible for us to make a life in Panama" and "are there other options for us to obtain a permanent visa"

More than anything we would love to live in a beautiful tranquil environment with NO winter!!! HELP!
