    Hello Everyone...

    My question is exactly this: "What is my country of permanent residence?"
    I live in Athens Greece with a residence permit/work permit. I am originally from South Korea so I hold a South Korean passport.
    So should I put S.Korea as my permenant residence or Greece? I am rather confused because I have not lived in S. Korea since 1998 but I do not technically have the right to "permenantly" live in Greece without renewing my permit...
    I need to get a travel insurance and I would like to get a couples' cover as offered on World Nomads website as I will be travelling to Thailand with my boyfriend who is Greek.
    But, I wonder if my country of permanant residence is NOT Greece, then we cannot get the couples cover?
    I don't want to select the wrong permanent residence and then the cover somehow doesn't apply...
    Please Help!

    Why not ask the insurance company? They will know what they are looking for. You can always ask anonymously first if you are concerned.

    I agree with busylizzys suggestion in terms of getting a definitive answer but I think generally country of residence is used to determine the country to which you will be repatriated to in the event of an emergency.
