FIRST: The first step is to print, complete, and sign, an Escrow Agreement. The Escrow Agreement is very important because it regulates the relationship and defines the terms and conditions of the escrow services that are provided, plus it is required by the bank to clear the funds. The Escrow Agreement can be downloaded at the following link;
SECOND: Next, please make a photocopy of your valid passport (if you do not have a passport, please use an alternative identification, such as a government issued drivers license), and get a bank reference letter (or copy of your bank account statement) from the bank where the funds are being sent from. If the funds are being sent from a third party, then please write a detailed letter to explain where the funds are being sent from. Please note that the bank may require additional information about the source where the funds are sent from if the funds are sent from a third party.
Fax or scan and email the completed and signed Escrow Agreement, photocopy of passport, and bank reference letter (or account statement or third party letter) to our fax number in Panama ++(507)227-7485 or email.
FOURTH: Provide information and documentation of origin (source) of funds (savings, business transaction, property sale, etc.), and information and documentation in regards to destiny of funds (example; a Property transaction, investment, etc. -- if we are processing your transaction we must provide this information to the bank). This information should be provided through a letter, signed by you, explaining these details, with supporting documentation such as a purchase agreement, bank or investment account statement, etc.
