Hi all, I live in Australia, will there be an issue buying the OS from here? What can I do if there is? Thanks :-)

You can ask somebody, who live in Europe. Me, for example?

I hope that Jolla, like Sony and Eurovision, think Australia is a part of Europe

Other than that I think we'll be able to use a VPN to / from Europe and voila, we're in.

I want to buy it in New Zealand too. I'd rather not have to faff about using VPN or get someone else to buy it for me.

By Europe you mean EU or all possible Eurovision contestants?)) I would like to buy it from Belarus.

VPN.Secure endpoints in various European countries I tried seem to be blocked

Have you tried using the VPN option in the Opera browser? It worked seamlessly for me. I think I used the Netherlands option.

Yep, VPN built into Opera works perfectly - I used the endpoint in Germany

Opera browser has built in VPN

I used it to purchase SailfishOS for my Xperia X

I'm in New Zealand. I used Opera browser and the built in VPN. The purchase was seamless.

In Australia, tbis is the method that I used. Worked perfectly.
