With a Premium account, you can travel anywhere in the world without having to change your Spotify region. Nevertheless, you may want to think about updating your payment method if you are moving to a new country.

For Free accounts, this is slightly different. You can only listen to music in another country for up to 14 days before you will need to change your region. There is a quick and easy way to do so.
