My family is spread across the world and I live and work in a different country than my native one.
My iPhone and Apple ID are registered to my country of residence.
On a few occasions, recently, I tried buying apps that were available only in my home country (I don't know exactly why) - but I got an error message saying I couldn't buy apps in that country with my current Apple ID.
First, I am not entirely sure I understand the rationale for such a restriction. Is it some kind of trade embargo?
Anyway, the main question is what can I do to circumvent this pointless restriction and still buy apps that are present only in my home country?
P.S.: I saw there were a few similar questions, but I am addressing specifically the ability to buy/download the app and not just view it (I can already view it!).
