You have to open a new account in the country you are in, which will mean using a new email address as the old one will be rejected. Unfortunately paypal does not allow you to use an account from another country if you are now in a new country.

No other financial institution I deal with has any problems with changing country? If there are country specific "functions" as you claim, what are they? And why can't they just update to whatever is available in the new country? Hmm? It's idiotic this requirement.

Since its not allowed to change my country on my account. I tried to make another one and fill the country to UAE. But when I view my account settings then address, it still says Philippines. Can I know why and how can I change that?

I have the same problem. I only have one email and I want to change the country of my paypal account, but it is not possible. I am currently in different country than my card linked in the account. 

OK I will create two accounts but how can I do this with one email? Maybe is time for paypal to fix this issue?!

Hi guys.

 

I'm sorry but it's not possible to change the country that your PayPal accounts are registered in.

 

If you have moved to a different country, you can either close your current PayPal account so that you can use the same email address to create a new account or you can keep your current account open and create a new account in the country that you are living in at the moment.

 

David.

You can add a 2nd e-mail for the first account setup the new one as the prior one than delete the first e-mail address from the list. Create the new account and add the deleted e-mail address to this new account as thd prior one. Easy.

They weren't asking how to re-use an email address, they were asking about changing countries.

Last day I chat with the Paypal customer service and they told me it is impossible to change. I called the call center same result. So now I m planning the e-mail version.

No you can't CHANGE your paypal account to another country, you have to close the old paypal account down and then open another paypal account in the country where you now reside making sure you add a phone number / address / cards / bank accounts from within that country.
