What is a domiciliary resident?

You are a domiciliary resident if your permanent home is in Virginia, whether living in or out of Virginia.

This includes members of the U.S. armed forces who have Virginia as their home of record, even if stationed outside of Virginia.

Any person who has not abandoned his or her legal domicile in Virginia and established legal domicile in another state remains a domiciliary resident of Virginia, even if residing in another jurisdiction for a number of years. In determining domicile, the department considers many factors. Some of the more common indicators of domicile are: voter registration; motor vehicle and personal property registration; business pursuits; expressed intent; conduct; leaseholds and situs of real property owned.
