Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hello, i want to collect all points that have "amenity=school" as tag and i created the following raw data URL:


Since not all the points have address tags, is it possibile to combine the Nominatim's reverse geocoding capabilities with the overpass-api query to get all the points with related city and country?

I am not 100% but I think that overpassAPI and overpass-turbo cannot deliver any reverse geocoding.

So you need an own solution, either by Nominatim, or by anothzer search engine or framework ... see Search_engines

Also do a search on this FAQ site for "bulk geocoding" and "reverse geocoding".

The is_in query acts as a reverse geocode, but there is not an Overpass operator to mark up the input items with the geocoding results, it would have to be used in a manner similar to nominatim.
