Who qualifies for the Friendly Nations Panama investor visa?

I live in the U.S. on an EB-5 temporary visa but want to obtain Panama residency and, eventually, Panama citizenship. As a legal resident of the U.S., am I eligible for the Friendly Nations visa, since America is on the nations list? Or is it determined by something else, like country or birth or citizenship?

    Eligibility for the Friendly Nations visa is based on citizenship and not residency. Applicants are required to provide an original passport from the eligible country and a second ID.
