Cannot Select a Region when Attempting to restore a droplet utilizing a snapshot

I was attempting to make a droplet from a snapshot I recently made from a droplet i recently closed but all the regions are unavailable.

I am using Ubuntu as the OS of the droplet, the droplet was working a day ago but I had to destroy it, so I had created a snapshot.

When I try to create a new droplet I can select a region but with the snapshot it states that "The Image you have selected is not available in this region" for every region.

Snapshots start out tied to the region in which the were created.
If you want to create a droplet from the snapshot in another region, you need to first move the snapshot to that region.
