If you ever want to change your country in PayPal, forget it. You’re not allowed to change the country your account. If you really wanna change your country in profile then you have to close your account and open an account again with the same email address.
Recently one of my friends came back to Sri Lanka after finishing in Masters in USA. He just wanted to change his country to Sri Lanka, so he wrote a letter to PayPal. As I said earlier they want him to close his account and open a new account.
If you wanna know how you can withdraw money from unverified PayPal account, check out my Easy Steps to Withdraw Money to Sri Lankan Bank.
I do apologize
for the inconvenience this issue may have caused you. I understand that you would want ton change the country in your account and add a new credit card on your new account having the Sri Lanka as the country.
When changing your street address, you will be unable to change your country of residence, as PayPal currently does not have a feature where you can add addresses from multiple countries on the same PayPal
account. The only way to change the country of residence is to open a new PayPal account, and select your country of residence during the sign up process.
Please note that an email address can only be used on one active PayPal account at a time. If you want to use the same email address on your new account, you will first have to close your existing PayPal account
however, since you still have balance in this account, I would suggest that you have to initiate a check withdrawal for you to get the money in your PayPal account balance.
Members registered from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, China, Ecuador, India, Jamaica, or Uruguay can request a check to be mailed to the address on their PayPal Account by following these instructions:
1. Log in to your account at https://www.paypal.com/

3. Click ‘Request a check from PayPal’
4. Enter the amount
5. Select the address the check is to be mailed to using the
6. Click ‘Continue’
7. Review the confirmation page
8. Click ‘Submit’
When you request a check, it will take 4-6 business days to process the request and prepare the check to be mailed. Postal delivery time is additional and varies depending on your country of residence.
· PayPal has no control over postal delivery times
· Check delivery may be delayed by government holidays in both the
U.S. and in your home country
· PayPal is not responsible for inaccurately entered mailing
Once you receive the check for your withdrawal that is the time to close
the account so that you will be able to use the same email address and
create an account under Sri Lanka.
To close your PayPal account, please follow these steps:
Log in to your account at https://www.paypal.com/
Click the “Profile” subtab.
