Note the word "usual". If you"re on a tourist visa in another country for just 6 months, that"s not really where you NORMALLY reside. You"re considered a visitor in that country, not a resident.
In this case it"s likely lớn be your country of citizenship, if that"s where you usually live when you"re not darkedeneurope.comling on this tourist visa.

What address would you give someone who intends khổng lồ send you critical correspondence at some indefinite point in the future? Where do you have your mail shipped? Where bởi you receive your bills? What address does your most recently opened ngân hàng account have on it? What address vì you put on your tax forms? What address is nearest the school you would send your kids to lớn (if you had any)? Etc.
That is your current residence. This is not always the same as your citizenship.
Residence: I live in Japan. My kids go lớn school there, I have a permanent residential address, have a residency visa, etc.
Visitor: I visit other countries for work for several months at a time. Sometimes I rent an apartment, sometimes I"m staying with people I know (at their residence), but I might leave at any time and am usually either on a work visa or tourist visa.
Citizen: I am an American citizen. I was born in Texas và my passport says so.
Where you live, where you are, and what place claims khổng lồ own you.
You can be in-between
For a few years I didn"t really have a residence. I hopped around a lot and didn"t have a single đô thị or even country I could hotline "home". If someone had, in an official capacity, asked me where I lived I would have still replied "Texas". Even though that wasn"t true in the sense that I hadn"t been there for a few years, it was more true than claiming some place I had only been staying for a few weeks or months và knew I wouldn"t be in much longer (especially on a tourist visa).
It is useful to lưu ý that many official bureaucracies (and their documents) are particularly unfriendly lớn people who don"t fit the "born, schooled, worked, died -- all in the same 10 miles" mould. This bureaucratic detail can significantly hinder your efforts to lớn get even the simplest things done in life, despite being a completely made-up problem. For that reason it is usually much less painful to use your place of birth or your family"s residence (if you have a family or parents) as a sort of administrative anchor rather than try to explain the details of your situation.
