Domicile

A person is domiciled in a country in which he/she has or is deemed to have a permanent home. Everyone must have a domicile. A person receives a domicile of origin at birth but may acquire a new domicile by the fact of residing in a different country with the intention of remaining there indefinitely. It is not sufficient to intend to reside in a country for a fixed period of time or until some clearly foreseen and reasonably anticipated event happens.
