As you probably know, Apple IDs are location-centered, meaning they work according to the region or country they are created for. In order to buy something from the App Store, iTunes Store, Mac App Store, you must make sure your Apple ID is in consonance with the country or region you live in. Accordingly, you’ll have to change your Apple ID country or region if you switch to a new place.
You must have your new credit/debit card on hand before tweaking the country/region settings on your device.
