      Hi Lijun,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      Actually, on closer inspection, so long as you either a New Zealand or Australian permanent resident, you should be able to transfer your balance out of your TWUSUPER fund, under the Trans-Tasman retirement savings portability scheme. TWUSUPER is an APRA-regulated fund, which is one of the stipulations for transferring the balance. You should make sure your super fund in New Zealand is compliant – it needs to be one of the funds regulated under the KiwiSaver scheme. You also needs to have permanently emigrated to New Zealand. There are some other conditions which apply to the transfer. You should contact your super fund for further advice.

      I hope this information has helped.

      Cheers,
      Harold
