Hi there @Ocean,

thanks for posting !


Premium subscribers can travel the world and use their Spotify account everywhere and anytime they want.

However, if you moved to another country permanently, you'd have to chance your country settings.

In order to make sure you have followed the right steps changing your country settings, please check out this help page.


If upon following the steps you'll eventually decide you wish to create a new account and have your data transfered safely, you can always visit this Spotify Answer for more help.


Let me know if you have any further questions
