Country Of Residence Là Gì

I”m filling in an online application form for an Australian visa, and there is a step “Contact details” which asks for a “Country of residence”, specifically “Usual country of residence” (see the screenshot below). There is a ? hint and it is not informative—here is the full text of that hint:

From the option list, select your usual country of residence.

In a later step, you will be asked to provide your full residential address in this country.


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 resided in that country for six months now and plan to go to Australia from that country. So what should I state: the country I”m residing in now or the country of my citizenship?

Active Oldest Votes23Note 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 tech269.comling on this tourist visa.

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

An example

Residence: I live in Japan. My kids go to school there, I have 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 and 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, where you are, and what place claims to own you.

You can be in-between

It is useful to note that many official bureaucracies (and their documents) are particularly unfriendly to 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 get even the simplest things done in life, despite being a completely made-up problem. For that reason it is usually much less painful to use your place of birth or your family”s residence (if you have a family or parents) as a sort of administrative anchor rather than try to explain the details of your situation.
