    Sad to say, nope. I got the blank international warranty card for my camera and can be said useless.
    Let's get rolling :)

    International Warranty Card

    New PENTAX products do not automatically come with an international warranty that covers all PENTAX products around the world. However, it is possible to obtain an International Warranty Card through PENTAX Imaging Company, Inc. after you have purchased a PENTAX product. If you bought your PENTAX product in the United States and are traveling to a foreign country for an extended period of time, we can send you an International Warranty Card to cover your product while you are abroad. We will also send you a list of authorized service centers around the world.


    NOTE :

    If you bought your PENTAX product in the United States and are traveling to a foreign country for an extended period of time, we can send you an International Warranty Card to cover your product while you are abroad.


    They may not cover the International Warranty because :


    1) We are not bought PENTAX product in the United States but from United States , am i right ?

    2) We are resident in Singapore and not traveling to Singapore for an extended period of time, am i right ?

    I just received a confirmation from Pentax USA that they have sent out the international warranty card (2 days after I sent the email). So if you buy from US (not grey stocks), I think surely pass the "test".

    I think i check b4... Shriro wont give International warranty for Pentax products brought in other countries.. Will need to get frm Pentax USA if u buy from USA.

    I dun think it matters if the shipping/billing address is a US address.
    I use vpost in the order oso indicated as the US shipping address.
    U juz need to provide ur sg mailing addr so that Pentax USA can mail 2 u...

    I am also interested to know... might be getting FA35 from Adorama or B&H
    Anyone know if using vPost is better? And will we incur GST?

    I bought a K10D body and a Pentax 18-250mm lens from B&H.

    Did not use vPost because B&H did not restrict delivery to US addresses only. They offered many delivery options: UPS, Fedex, US Postal Service etc. Mine were delivered using UPS which was the cheapest option.

    UPS Singapore paid local GST in advance at port of entry (i.e. Changi) and claimed it back from me plus Sing$10 extra as admin fee. I paid them using a personal cheque when UPS delivered the goods to me. The UPS guy told me that they accept cash as well.

    Hope this helps!

    UPS Global Saver: 3 -5 business days. Can also track the parcel on-line.
    I saw mine went from New York to Kentucky, then Germany, Dubai, Thailand and then Singapore. All in the course of 3 days. It arrived in Singapore on Sunday, cleared customs same day. Scheduled to deliver to me on Monday. As i was not at home during office hours on Monday, I gave UPS a phone call first thing on Monday morning. Quoted them the parcel Tracking Number, and re-scheduled it to be delivered between 8pm and 10pm on Monday evening. Very nice service with no extra cost.

    I got my K10D with kit lens from Adorama.
    And got it shipped to vPost. Same thing vpost will charge you the GST and shipping.
    It takes longer via vpost as compared to UPS Global.

    As ground shipping via USPS takes about 5-7 business day to reach vpost usa.
    Then vpost usa will take another 5-8 working days to sent it to you. But it depends on how fast u make the shipping charges.

    I think we need to pay GST for goods entering into Singapore... UPS/vPost pay on your behalf first when the goods reach Singapore, then you pay UPS/vPost when they deliver to your home

    Is using vPost cheaper than UPS Global?
