Is it necessary to buy an AppleCare Plan in the same country where you bought your Mac?

I'm from the Philippines, and obviously it's where I bought my "13 non-Retina MBP. I want to buy an APP for it, but the cost here in our country is kind of expensive on my part. While browsing in our local Mac forums, I came up with a link to a US store that sells much cheaper APPs: B&H Photo Video


Is it valid to buy an APP in the US even if I bought my MBP locally here in the Philippines? Are there existing terms or conditions like these that apply when it comes to buying APPs? I'm paranoid of going through this route as maybe Apple would reject my intended APP registration, thus wasting my money in the process.


I'll try to email the store's sales support to see what I can come up with.
