How recent must the documents be for my Panama visa application?

I read that some documents must only be recent. How recent? Does it depend on the documents?

    As a general rule, all documents must have been issued within six months at the time of filing the residency application with the government office. There are some exceptions, such as the medical certificate issued in Panama (90 days), and police report from countries where it is stated an expiration date on the document (for example, 30 days or 60 days).
