Hey, can you order one also for me? Prague - Czech Rep. 🙂

Oculus, please give us info about this. Let us go on VRparty too!
Thanks, Tomas.

There is no available info. When more countries are added it'll most likely be announced.

some fresh words from Palmer's AMA.


Q: I live in Switzerland, when does my country to become shippable? I'm sure everybody in a non shippable country has the same question 🙂

A: We are trying to expand our shipping list as fast as possible, Korea is one of the current top priorities. I wish we could ship everywhere, but 20 countries is already super hard.

What Palmer says is simply one-eyed and ignorant. He does even speak about Korea (!!) when the you ask him about Switzerland !!

I more and more think the Oculus guys would need >10 Minutes to find either Austria or Switzerland on a world map.

It makes no difference wether you ship to Sweden, Finland or to Portugal, Austria. All these countries share the CE marking. (maybe Switzerland is different... not EU)

And the top of that all : You cannot order using a verified PayPal account if you do not add a Credit Card ! Sorry, i'm really uncomplaining, but eventually they force me to buy a competitors HMD.

Wouldn't they also have the same issues and also be more in a limited supply:)? If I remember right, Vive wont have a big supply at all and then there is the fact they just recently made some changes to the HMD meaning that'll take some time added to their work load.

Oculus is a USA company, USA people are well known for not being any good at geography outside of their own country. Lots of them seem to think the world starts in LA and ends in NY.

I would also be very much interested in shipping to Austria, it was not an issue with the DK2 and I am planning to obtain the retail Rift soon!

Actually, I'd go one step further - many can't tell the difference between Austria and Australia. Might be why the later is on the list, but not the former.
