  2. Attach the following documents in PDF:
    • Copy of Passport (Residents) or Panamanian cédula of the Minor (Panamanians); and,
    • Copy of Passport (Residents) or Panamanian cédula of both parents (Panamanians).
  3. Once the online application is completed, the interested party must carry the printed authorization letter to any of the Notaries nationwide, where they will verify the data and register a digital copy of this process in the electronic platform.
