So long story short I was living in Asia and bought my macbook pro in Hong Kong because 1. It's super cheap there (comparatively) and 2. I needed a new macbook since my old one was stolen, and it just worked out to buy it there.


Now I've run into a small problem. For some reason, the app store insists that my billing address has to end with Hong Kong, and claims that my VISA card is not a valid payment method in Hong Kong. Since buying the macbook I have moved to Norway, and my billing address is now here as I got a new VISA card. How can I change it? I never really set up any payment info in the app store before this...

The steps appear to work ok e.g. when changing the region you get the store's terms showing and you agree to them, and you then get the payment details/billing address screen ?

How are you trying to update your details ? You should be able to update your details by first changing the country/region on your account : Change the country of your iTunes Store, App Store, iBooks Store, and Mac App Store account
