    Whether you can download apps from a particular country's AppStore is dependent on your location, not your nationality. This applies even if the apps in question are free. You would have to set up a UK iTunes account, with whatever documentation they ask for.

    I created a UK iTunes account with a UK address cribbed off the Internet. (I think I googled the BBC's address.) I elected to not attach a credit card and just bought free apps at first. Since then, I've had a friend buy me a UK iTunes gift card, in case I want buy something.

    It's not possible unless you have a credit card registered to an address in that country.

    That's not accurate. You can google for instructions. That's how I opened a UK iTunes account without any UK credit card.

    Maybe it depends on the country you're from. In the European country I'm in, it's not possible.
