Xbox Live Account Migration from US to KSA (Saudi Arabia) (supported almost 1 month ago)

  • Level   1

Hi Xbox support,

I just want to know a way to change my Xbox Live account region from US which I don't live in to KSA (Saudi Arabia) since it has been supported almost 1 month ago,or maybe you can change it for me. So I can get my full Xbox Live experience.

Wish you reply soon,

Your loyal Xbox Live member,

    Hello iF9ooL,


    Please reach out to chat support or phone support by clicking this link here. They should be able to assist you with migrating the account.

    Please read the information below:

    You have chosen to migrate your Xbox LIVE account to a new country. You should be aware that certain Xbox LIVE content, features and functions may vary depending on your location, due to licensing limitations provided by specific providers. In order to proceed, you must confirm that you have been informed of and fully understand the consequences of the migration of your Xbox Live account:

    Microsoft reminds you that the migration of your Xbox Live account will have the following consequences:

    Some of the services and content that you are currently benefiting from in the country originally registered may not also be available in the country you are willing to migrate to.

    All of your current subscriptions, except for Xbox Live Gold if you had any, will be cancelled.
    You may lose the ability to re-download some, if not all, of the content in your download history.

    Any content that you will subsequently download after the account is migrated will be subject to any applicable geofencing rules of your new location.

    Note on Geofencing: If you bought something in the country you originally registered in that wasn't geofenced, it could be that it will be if bought again, in your new location. These geofencing constraints depend on the license to distribute that Microsoft was granted by the content providers.

    Please note that the migration process can take up to 6 weeks. During this time your account will not be available. No refunds will be given for any content that is lost during the migration.


    You can only switch regions to an already supported LIVE region. You can view this list here.

    Assalam 3lekum, I think you may stick to the US region instead of changing it to Saudi Arabia (became a live enabled country in 2012) because you may not get the full gaming experience in here as you may be having in the US. I'm telling you this because I can't have full gaming experience (like DLCs not available for some games, no TV & Movies, no Music etc) as my region is set to Saudi Arabia.

    Please don't bump threads that are this old... It was over a year since the previous post in this thread.

    Well, my first question is how did YOU find this thread?

    And second is I really didn't had idea about that its a year old. Actually I was searching for something else when I found this.

    I 'found' it because when you replied to it you bumped it to the top of the pile, which is where I am looking for threads in which I can help.

    If you have a look at the date stamps on the messages you see they are from a year ago.

    I don't mean to be critical, I was simply pointing it out.
