Most don't have that ability or flexibility so may look for other ways. For those the long term visa in Panama makes a lot of sense.
That's true, but its not "automatic" as implied by an earlier post. Still a lot of time and paper chasing to do.

I'm considering that option, very favorable program. Apparently a bit too favorable in the opinion of some politicians, so might be best to take advantage of it soon before they try to repeal it.

The press caught the oversight and added the "T".
