In the past you couldn't do this without contacting support. I don't know when Apple changed iTunes on the computers, but you can simply sign in to your account and switch countries as long as you are not enrolled in iTunes Match or carrying a balance on your current store. Cancel or spend down as needed and then you can start the process of switching.

I do not recommend anyone switch countries lightly - there are serious downsides like no longer getting re-downloads, app updates, and general confusion from support since an account that started in one country and migrated to another is an edge case that breaks many assumptions about how the app store works (and doesn't work).

Also, I feel the need to reiterate, I do not recommend most people to ever switch an account with any apps you are not ready to simply repurchase to another country.

Losing app updates in the future is hard to guess and this switch is quite disruptive - moreso than juggling two accounts on one device in my experience.

I don't see a clear set of guidance onIn the iTunes store policy page -past you couldn't do this would be a great question to ask of the actual people thatwithout contacting support the store.

  I would just ask them what your options are -don't know when Apple changed iTunes on the computers, but you currently live in x and will be living for some time (perhaps permanently)can simply sign in country y. You obviously don't want to lose your existing purchases.

The support people will surely haveaccount and switch countries as long as you are not enrolled in iTunes Match or carrying a nice explanationbalance on what your options arecurrent store. They will have the actual benefit of knowing the internal policy goals as well as what possibilitiesCancel or restrictions on how many times they will letspend down as needed and then you change addresses (if in fact there is a limit)can start the process of switching.

My guess is they won't let you rapidly change locations many times - but it's a guess and I wouldn't want to give you bad info if you have serious $ tied up in your past purchases. iTunes screen to change your country or region for purchases
