Country of residence là gì

I"m filling in an online application khung for an Australian visa, & 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 và it is not informative—here is the full text of that hint:

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

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

MY QUESTION:

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 & plan khổng lồ 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?

cảnh 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 lớn be your country of citizenship, if that"s where you usually live when you"re not sydneyowenson.comling on this tourist visa.

Your residence

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

That is your current residence. This is not always the same as your citizenship.

An example

Residence: I live in Japan. My kids go to lớn 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 & am usually either on a work visa or tourist visa.

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

Where you live, where you are, and what place claims lớn own you.

You can be in-between

For a few years I didn"t really have a residence. I hopped around a lot & didn"t have sầu a single city or even country I could gọi "home". If someone had, in an official capacity, asked me where I lived I would have sầu 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 (& 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 khổng lồ 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 a family or parents) as a sort of administrative sầu anchor rather than try khổng lồ explain the details of your situation.
