Panama is one of the most productive and demanded offshore zones in the world. At the same time, the development of entrepreneurial activity and the potential benefits for business are immediately visible upon a cursory examination of the privileges of Panama over other states. Like all offshore zones, Panama has ratified the 1961 Hague Convention on the Simplification of the Procedure for the Legalization of Documents for Use Outside the Borders of the Country. Apostille in Panama is used in most cases for company documents, since their concentration within the borders of a small state is very large. At the same time, the apostille applies to any documents issued by the Panamanian authorities to both companies and individuals. If you live outside Panama and you have a need to obtain and submit any official material or document from Panama in your country, an apostille will be a prerequisite for you.
Corporations and large firms can obtain data from the Panama commercial register regarding their partners, while affixing an apostille does not require the consent of the owners of the requested information. But this situation may not be for all documents, individual papers can be apostilled only if there is an original or a copy certified by a notary in Panama. The simplified legalization service attracts the attention of not only corporate clients, but also ordinary people for various reasons.

When determining the category of jurisdiction by the OECD countries, Panama was included in the «gray list» of jurisdictions that have assumed obligations to adopt tax standards approved at the international level, but have not yet sufficiently implemented them. Also, the Republic of Panama is included in the «black list» of offshore companies of the European Union, but at the same time the rapid economic activity in the country continues.
