I am from India, and I have come to US for work. Today I am going to purchase a MacBook Air 256GB 13" with Retina display. Due to budget restrictions, I will not be able to purchase AppleCare along with it.

I want to know the following:

  1. Once I purchase the laptop from US and come back to India, will I be able to purchase AppleCare for this laptop here in India?

  2. If yes, will there be any restrictions on the AppleCare?

  3. If no, what can I do.

Apple recommends you to purchase an AppleCare protection plan in your country of residence, implying the country where you'll be seeking repair services.

Where can I purchase the AppleCare Protection Plan?

The AppleCare Protection Plan is available at the Apple Online Store and many Apple-authorised resellers and wireless service providers.

To answer your questions:

  1. Once I purchase the laptop from US and come back to India, will I be able to purchase AppleCare for this laptop here in India?

Yes.

  1. If yes, will there be any restrictions on the AppleCare?

No.

P.S.: The answers are based on information provided by Apple and from personal experiences.
