How to Get Residency in St. Maarten
MOVING TO ST. MAARTEN
With warm weather, a relaxed style of living, and beautiful nature everywhere you look, there is no doubt why living in Sint Maarten is a dream for many.
Moving to any place implies several steps and things you need to consider before taking the next step. Relocation always means a real estate search, gathering personal documents for your immigration process, finding the proper school if you have kids, getting your pets ready to travel by meeting the requirements of the new country, and sometimes means opening a new business or starting a new job. All these things are exciting and overwhelming at the same time, this is why having the right assistance around is of great value.
Sint Maarten is a multi-cultural island, making it a very highly attractive location for anyone looking to relocate here. One of the great facts about St, Maarten is its international connectivity, with direct flights from Europe, the USA, and most of the surrounding islands, Sint Maarten also has the biggest port in the region with no import-export taxes, meaning you can move and bring your personal belongings and even your vehicle with ease, and no property taxes for your real estate investment.
