  1. why don’t you provide more details on Tax and what is the term? just a statement of 183 days will be taxed? what is that mean? what % is taxed? there is a lack of details when it comes to tax.

    1. That’s the general information they have provided in their website, so if you need specifications and explanations, its better to contact the authorities as they are experts of that.
