What is really meant by "Country of residence" here? Is it the country of my citizenship or the country I currently reside in? Now I"m not in my country of citizenship. I reside in another country with an extended tourist visa. I have sầu resided in that country for six months now & plan lớn go khổng lồ nước Australia from that country. So what should I state: the country I"m residing in now or the country of my citizenship?

Active Oldest Votes23cảnh báo the word "usual". If you"re on a tourist visa in another country for just 6 months, that"s not really where you NORMALLY reside. You"re considered a visitor in that country, not a resident.

In this case it"s likely to be your country of citizenship, if that"s where you usually live when you"re not hjwitteveen.comling on this tourist visa.

What address would you give sầu someone who intends to sover you critical correspondence at some indefinite point in the future? Where do you have sầu your mail shipped? Where vị you receive sầu your bills? What address does your most recently opened bank trương mục have on it? What address vì you put on your tax forms? What address is nearest the school you would sover your kids to lớn (if you had any)? Etc.

An example

Residence: I live in nhật bản. My kids go to school there, I have sầu a permanent residential address, have a residency visa, etc.

Visitor: I visit other countries for work for several months at a time. Sometimes I rent an apartment, sometimes I"m staying with people I know (at their residence), but I might leave at any time và am usually either on a work visa or tourist visa.

Citizen: I am an American citizen. I was born in Texas and my passport says so.

Where you live sầu, where you are, & what place claims khổng lồ own you.

You can be in-between

For a few years I didn"t really have sầu a residence. I hopped around a lot và didn"t have a single đô thị or even country I could gọi "home". If someone had, in an official capacity, asked me where I lived I would have still replied "Texas". Even though that wasn"t true in the sense that I hadn"t been there for a few years, it was more true than claiming some place I had only been staying for a few weeks or months and knew I wouldn"t be in much longer (especially on a tourist visa).

It is useful to lớn note that many official bureaucracies (và their documents) are particularly unfriendly lớn people who don"t fit the "born, schooled, worked, died -- all in the same 10 miles" mould. This bureaucratic detail can significantly hinder your efforts to lớn get even the simplest things done in life, despite being a completely made-up problem. For that reason it is usually much less painful khổng lồ use your place of birth or your family"s residence (if you have sầu a family or parents) as a sort of administrative anchor rather than try to lớn explain the details of your situation.
