10.21.9.30 People Who Travel to a Third Country - Agreement with Switzerland

Third country portability

Article 5.2 provides that where a payment is portable under domestic law, it is also payable to third countries under the Agreement. This means that payments without limitation on portability (such as age pension) are indefinitely payable to third countries under the Agreement. However, for example, payment of DSP into a third country would be restricted to 6 weeks.
