    Registrants of the .us tld must be US citizens, USA residents, or organizations, or a foreign entity with a presence in the United States.

    You are supposed to be in the US if you are buying a .us domain but really I wouldn't recommend buying it in the first place. The domain extension is not very successful and not used much by legitimate websites. If you are looking to resell it, it won't have much value.

    All international TLDs have generally the same rules, you need to be a citizen/live in the country's TLD.

    You can buy the .mx tld

    But most of the international TLDs have the citizen/residency rule.
