Something like this should work
Note: I used the Form in this example but will be the same for a Panel just make sure the AllowDrop property of you Panel is set to true.
Private Sub Form1_DragEnter(sender As Object, e As DragEventArgs) Handles MyBase.DragEnter
    If e.Data.GetDataPresent(DataFormats.FileDrop) Then
        e.Effect = DragDropEffects.Move
    End If
End Sub
Private Sub Form1_DragDrop(sender As Object, e As DragEventArgs) Handles MyBase.DragDrop
    Dim fileList As String() = DirectCast(e.Data.GetData(DataFormats.FileDrop, False), String())
    For i As Integer = 0 To fileList.Length - 1
        Dim destPath As String = "D:/pictures/"
        Directory.Move(fileList(i), destPath & Path.GetFileName(fileList(i)))
        'if only files and never directories and files you can use this instead
        'File.Move(fileList(i), destPath & Path.GetFileName(fileList(i)))
End Sub
