    I'm about to buy a Mac mini from Dubai, but I live in Sweden.
    Can I buy the AppleCare when I'm back in Sweden and repair my Mac mini in Sweden?

    You can buy the AppleCare Protection Plan for your MacMini since it's worldwide, you can't buy the upcoming AppleCare+. Not even sure if that coming for the MacMini.

    But the regular AppleCare, yes you can.

    I know in the US you have up to three months to buy Applecare. Look at the appleStore in your home country to see if you could do the same.

    AppleCare isn't location based, it's based on a activation code (which is in the box you buy) and the serial number of your Apple device.

    Heck.. you can even buy AppleCare at Ebay for 50% of the regular prices and still activate it.

    You can buy AppleCare any time during the first year, while the original warranty is in effect.

    Main reason for my asking is because Apple seems not to sell AppleCare in Dubai. Therefore I wanted to know if the Mac mini bought from there would be used with AppleCare in Sweden.

    The main issue with AppleCare is the date it was bought from an Apple Authorized Reseller. IF the place you are buying it from in Dubai is not an authorized reseller, then you won't have a proof of purchase that is valid to base AppleCare on.
