Are you looking to change your country or region on Instagram? Whether you’ve moved to a new location or simply want to update your Instagram profile, it’s a straightforward process. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the steps to change your country or region on Instagram.
Step 1: Open the Instagram App
Start by opening the Instagram app on your mobile device. Make sure you are logged into the account for which you want to make the change.
Step 2: Access Your Profile
In the bottom right corner of the app, you’ll find your profile icon – it looks like a small person-shaped silhouette. Tap on it to access your profile.
Step 3: Navigate to Settings
Once you’re on your profile page, look to the top right corner of the screen. You will see a three-bar icon (often referred to as a “hamburger” menu). Tap on it to open a menu.
Step 4: Access Account Settings
In the menu that appears, scroll down until you find “Settings and Privacy.” Tap on this option to proceed.
Step 5: Account Type and Tools
Scroll down further until you come across the section labeled “Account Type and Tools.” Tap on it to access the settings related to your Instagram account type.
Step 6: Switch to Professional Account
Within the “Account Type and Tools” section, you’ll see an option to “Switch to Professional Account.” Tap on this option to continue.
Step 7: Choose Your Account Type
Instagram will prompt you to choose the type of professional account that best describes you. To change your country or region, select the “Business” option, not the “Creator” option. Click “Next” to proceed.
Step 8: Update Business Address
After selecting the “Business” option, you will be prompted to provide a business address. This is where you can change your country or region. Tap on it and make the necessary changes to your location.
Step 9: Save Changes
Once you’ve updated your business address with the correct country or region, click “Done” or “Save” to confirm the changes.
Step 10: Return to Your Profile
You can now return to your Instagram profile by navigating back to your profile page.
Step 11: Verify the Change
To ensure that your country or region has been updated successfully, click on “Edit Profile” and scroll down to find the “Contact Options” section. From here, you can review and confirm that your country or region is now correctly displayed.
That’s it! You’ve successfully changed your country or region on Instagram. Whether you’ve moved to a new place or simply needed to update your profile information, following these steps will help you keep your Instagram account information accurate and up to date.
