Changing your address for receiving Google AdSense payments is easy but changing a country is not such an easy process.
The first thing I did when I moved to US was changed my country for my Google AdSense account because it would be beneficial for me to receive payments in US dollars rather than Indian Rupees which I earlier used to get and also since I got a bank account it US it meant faster payments than regular check payments.
You can use the following instructions to only change your country whenever you move to someplace else, the above EFT transfers are only available in US, in other countries you will receive the regular check payments.

I have been in touch with Google adsense support quite a few times, and at times they have contacted me with regards to my site not adhering to their policies. Overall it has been a great experience so would like to share a few tips to new and old adsense users about it.
1. You do not need to contact adsense support for running your ads on multiple site.
If you are an accepted publisher and run more than one site then you do not need to contact adsense support to add your ad code to another site.
To simplify you can run adsense on multiple site with the same publisher code without getting approval from Google adsense.
2. If you are making any changes to the way you display the ads that is not on the program policies please contact them
What I mean is that when you are trying something new with the way you display your adsense get it approved by the adsense team, mind you I do it every time I play around with ads and it helps a ton because I do not want to be on the blacklist and get banned.
If you are displaying images next to your ads then I recommend you to read these posts. Why to approve your changes with adsense?, well they make policies and ban users so it is better to ask than make money and get banned.
