Are Western Digital USB HDDs bought at Amazon on International warranty

I'm looking at the above & thought of adding the 2 years warranty
at $7.99.  Does anyone know if its warranty is honored worldwide
(as I plan to bring it back to my country)

The standard WD warranty appears to apply internationally.

However SquareTrade doesn't currently offer many international warranties. Here is the current (as of December 2012) statement from their website:

SquareTrade Protection Plans are available to residents of the 50 United States for eligible items purchase from a retail store, retail website, or through eBay.

Protection Plans are available to residents in the United Kingdom through Tesco, Asda, and through Amazon.co.uk for items purchased from Amazon.co.uk or any other authorized UK retailer. See our UK home page for more information.

For customers in Canada, we offer coverage for purchases made at eBay US, TigerDirect. and CompUSA stores and websites as well as TVs purchased at Costco.

We do not directly offer warranty purchases to Canadian, UK, or Puerto Rican residents yet, but we hope to be able to in the near future.

That 2 year warranty from Square Trade should be honored anywhere, but what they normally do is refund a portion of what you paid for the warranty. I ran into that with them before. Don't think it's work it unless you are buying something very expensive.

If you want warranty then buy the drive in local shop.
