A new social security agreement with Bosnia-Herzegovina was announced in the 2021-22 Budget.

The agreement will assist people to qualify for, claim, and be paid retirement pensions from both Australia and the relevant agreement partner country they may not otherwise be able to access. The agreement will also contain double coverage superannuation provisions for temporarily seconded workers.

Negotiations for the Social Security Agreement with Bosnia-Herzegovina are ongoing. The Agreement will commence once both countries have approved the text of the Agreement and completed all relevant treaty, legislative and administrative processes.

This page will be updated with commencement details for the agreement, pending completion of all required processes.
