Create a Free Azure Account

Copper Contributor

Good day, hope everyone is well


I am having an issue where I am trying to create a new Azure Account using my email I use for my Microsoft Account. This Microsoft Account was created in South Africa and since I've moved to the UK. All the regional settings and country settings are correct on my Microsoft Account now but when I try create a free Azure Account (for prep 104 exam) it says that my country/region is incorrect and reflects South Africa in a greyed out box which cannot be changed.

Any one else have this issue before ?
