Category:Non-US domiciles

Non-US domiciles includes pages that deal with the investment and taxation concerns of US and non-US citizens domiciled outside the US.

In most countries, the domicile of the investor determines the applicable rules; there are two notable exceptions to this: nationals of Eritrea and the US are taxed by their country independently of where they are domiciled[1].

In law, domicile is the status or attribution of being a lawful permanent resident in a particular jurisdiction. A person can remain domiciled in a jurisdiction even after they have left it, if they have maintained sufficient links with that jurisdiction or have not displayed an intention to leave permanently (that is, if that person has moved to a different state but has not yet decided to remain there indefinitely).

Most of the Bogleheads investment philosophy is universally applicable and hence the principles also apply if you live outside of the US assuming you take into account the local situation, rules and taxation.

For a complete outline of non-US investing, see Outline of Non-US domiciles. Non-US investors should note that many wiki pages do not apply to them. See Pages not applicable to Non-US investors (below). on the other hand some pages are solely applicable to non-US investors and are identified as such on the top of the page.

Canadian investors should also refer to our sister Canadian wiki, finiki.
