People change countries all the time. You may have been a student when you started your YouTube channel and AdSense account, and now you have moved to the United States or other countries. Now, you would like to receive payment in another country instead of your own. That’s why you are looking for a solution to change your Adsense country.
In this guide, I will share everything you need to know to change your Adsense payment country so that you can save time and get the job done in no time.
Does AdSense allow changing the country of the AdSense account?
Yes, you can change the country of your AdSense account.
However, when you do this, you lose access to all the old payment history, so make sure you download the old data for book-keeping purposes.
Also, according to the official Google AdSense Help Guide:
Changing your country will erase all payment history from your old payments profile. If you wish to transfer any remaining proceeds, we can only assist you if your new country is in the same Google Agreement entity.
Many of you might be wondering: Isn’t it better to open another AdSense account?
Well, here are some important things to know:
- You cannot have more than one AdSense account with the same name.
- However, if you have opened a new entity, you can open and operate an AdSense account under a new payment profile/entity.
- You can close your existing Adsense account and apply for a new one using a new email. However, I do not recommend this step.
You can read the official guide on “Close Your AdSense Account” to know more about it.

Tip: Make sure that your AdSense payment is not on hold, and that you have withdrawn your previous payment in your old country bank account.
Overall, Google AdSense provides modern publishers and YouTubers with all the tools to update and manage their account.
