How To Bypass OpenAI API is Not Available in Your Country Error Message

So follow these methods.
Tip – If you had access earlier but not now then use the same credentials by opening incognito/Private Window of browser.
Method 1. Use a Reliable VPN
In most cases, if you can’t use Openai API from your country, it means that the website is restricted in your area.
Download a VPN and set it to USA or France server or that country where it’s easily accessible. We suggest you use Express VPN or Nord VPN as these are the most trustable tools for this purpose.
Before using VPN make sure that you have deleted cookies saved for openai. Then log back into your account using a valid Non-VoIP phone number to your account.
Method 2. Download PingMe Second Phone Number
If you still can’t access OpenAI API after using VPN then give a try to this android app.
As Openai requires a valid phone number so download PingMe Second Phone Number on your mobile. This app lets you create a virtual number that you can use to bypass Openai API SMS verification.
Some might say that this site rejects virtual numbers but rest assured you can access this site. You also need to spend $1 dollar to recharge your balance.
Method 2. Clear Cache and other Browser Data
Now there are those who are in the list of supported countries, and yet Openai API says it’s not available. If that is the case with you then clear your cache and other browser data. Now open the site.
Method 3. Use your Friend’s Number
If you have a family or friend that is living in a country where openai API is accessible then use his/her number. Before that activate VPN then enter a number. A message will be sent to that number with the code.
Use that code to get access.
