comment Do I need to repurchase apps if I moved countries?
You can theoretically use one Apple ID and switch countries (inc. billing details) back and forth as it's doable. But probably easier to get a separate one to be honest. I do have one after a suggestion from iTunes Support a while back (I moved a year ago, but held off until now). But I was hoping a simple country switch won't do any harm. And it turned out it did. I am still fighting with them and won't easily let go as I think such a limitation is very hurtful.

It doesn't look good at the moment. Safal from iTunes Customer Support kindly told me that "after I change countries in my account, I won't be able to upgrade the content I purchased while my account was set to the previous country", this is with regards to iTunes music. He also said: "The content from the App Store is also country-specific. If you wish to upgrade any of your applications, please do so before changing countries". This is simply unacceptable and I've already replied expressing my "unhappiness" with the resolution (or its lack in fact).

Exactly, I wish I asked Apple last week. This is going to defer me buying Lion until the question is clearly answered.

Already contacted Apple Support. I really hope there is a good solution as I'm sure I'm not the only one in the world to be affected.

Although this doesn't directly answers my question, it does explain what is actually happening hence the accept.

Hmmm... This kind of... worked. But for this to work permanently (apps to be displayed in the Purchased list and update) I need to actually change my billing address back to what it was before which is going to cause problems. I need to update my question...

I don't think it's the country that causes it. Might try setting the old email address as the primary one (and login), but don't want to mess things up. Thought I'd ask here first if anyone had ever done that.
