Panama - Migration

Immigration and emigration have been roughly in balance in recent years. In the 1990s, there were 61,400 foreign-born persons in Panama, of which 13,644 were Colombians. In 1999, UNHCR urged Panamanian authorities to take a more flexible approach toward Colombians who arrived after February 1998 and are under a Temporary Protection plan. In 2000, the net migration rate was at -1.0 migrants per 1,000 population. The total number of migrants in the country that year was 82,000. The government views the migration levels as satisfactory.
