You don't have to do that. At least not for switching accounts respectively countries.
De-registerig your Kindle means, deleting all books.
If you only want to switch countries, in my case from Amazon Germany to Amazon US, you don't have to touch any of your Kindles at all.
You only change the country on Amazon's website in the country settings.
You manually can manipulate your Kindle's on that site as well: Changing the name, re-regsitering and so on.
I sometimes de-register, because I've got too many devices and can't download specific books on my Kindle of choice.
So I either delete the book manually on some other Kindle and then have another license to spare for my Kindle of choice. Or I de-register some Kindle entirely.
But like I said: Not necessary for changing countries!

There's no harm to it. And you even don't have to do it.
The basic idea: Normally, when switching countries, you'd stick with the new country for some time. Then it might make sense to take your former purchases with you and have them all in the very same account respectively linked to the very some country.
You can decide against it and only have your newest purchases linked to the new country.
I always transfer my purchases, so I have them all in a single place.
But in the beginning, around 2008, I did not. Back then, my already downloaded purchases did remain on my Kindles. They had not been deleted, although I did not transfer them. So probably the transfer mainly is about managing your purchases in the Amazon account, but not about having them available on the Kindles.

No, that's not true. Deregistering your Kindle (or registering it to a different account) does not remove anything. All that will happen is that you will no longer be able to read any books with DRM that were loaded from the previous account. If you subsequently re-register using the original account, those books will become readable again.

Deregistering removed the archives from the device, and removes books *if* the kindle is a fire, or if it is one of the kindle apps.

As far as registering after deregistering, registering the device must be done from the device itself. You can no longer register a device from the website.

Amazon.com.br is almost crap. Since always I have my account configured as if I live in US, and every digital purchase is seamless.

What do you mean what you say "removes the archive from the device"? The archive is a list of all your purchases which aren't on the device. There's nothing to remove.

Interesting!
So you could have books from numerous accounts in parallel? Read in one account, deregister that one and temporarily use another account? Switching back and forth without ever to having download books again?
It seems to be different for Kindle apps, though. My Sony tablet S did delete all books when deregistering. But then again, the Kindle app didn't work well at all on Sony tablet S...

Yes, that's exactly what a married couple who are friends of mine do. They have separate Amazon accounts; when they want to read each other's books they just unregister the Kindle from their own account, and register it with their partner's account. This is on an actual Kindle reader (he has a KK, she has a PW); I don't know if the apps work differently.

That is possible for eink kindles. Fires and apps do not allow that.

When you deregister the device l, it breaks the link to the account, so the archives (or cloud, on some kindles) is empty. The archived items are no longer listed in the device, until you register back to the account.

And, for fires, content is removed from the device as well (although generally not apps... Although most paid apps either won't run when the device is deregistered, or will cease functioning within about a month when they phone out to verify their registration...

Yes, that is (self-evidently) true, but I must reiterate that nothing is being removed from the Kindle, because nothing in the Archive is on the Kindle.

Correct. My wording was poor. Nothing is removed on an eink kindle besides the link to the archives.

Thank you for clarifying.
