Traveling or moving with Netflix

Netflix is available in over 190 countries around the world. If you're traveling or moving within your current country or to a new one, here are a few things to keep in mind.

Using Netflix while traveling

Taking Netflix with you while you’re on the go? All you need is a stable internet connection for your supported device. When watching outside of the country you signed up for Netflix in, we'll notify you in the Netflix app of differences you might experience while abroad.

You will be informed of changes to:

  • Selection of TV shows and movies: Your choices for streaming (including audio/subtitle options) will be the same as the location you are traveling from.

    • If you are traveling for an extended period of time, or traveling to a country outside of the European Union, you may notice that the available choices change. For countries within the European Union, we provide the same content as your home country for a limited period of time. Also, My List and Continue Watching titles may not be available.

  • Different maturity ratings: Maturity ratings and classifications are shown for the country you are in. If you have parental controls set that use a different rating system than the country you’re visiting, titles may be available (or unavailable) due to the differences in the maturity ratings.

  • Downloads: Current downloaded titles on your phone, tablet, or computer may not be available while in a different country.

You will see these notifications on computer browsers and most phones and tablets.

Moving within your current country

If you are moving within your current country, you can continue to enjoy the same Netflix experience without making any changes.

Moving to a new country

If you are moving to a new country where Netflix is available, there are a few things to be aware of:

  • Monthly price, billing currency, and available payment methods may vary by country.

  • You will continue to be billed in the currency of the country you signed up in.

    • If you wish to be billed in the currency of the country you moved to: cancel your account, wait until the remainder of your month is over, and restart your account in the new country.

  • Your selection of TV shows and movies may change. Your choices for streaming and downloading will vary from country to country.

  • Audio and subtitle options may change.

  • Different maturity ratings. Your parental controls settings may need to be updated.

    • If you wish to change your profile maturity ratings to reflect those of the country you moved to, cancel and restart your account in your new country.

If you receive the Now on Netflix emails and move to a new country, the email will still show TV shows and movies for the country you signed up in. You can unsubscribe to it from your Communications settings.

Netflix is not available in China, Crimea, North Korea, or Syria. If you are moving to one of these countries, you may cancel your account by signing in and visiting your Account page.

Unless you’ve recently moved, you cannot change the country for your account.
