Secondment: Social security agreement with Brazil

Updated: Nov 17, 2022

A social security agreement with Brazil was signed on 17.05.2022: For postings to Brazil, there is a continued insurance in Austria of five years, if there was insurance in Austria for at least one month before. An extension of the 5 years is not possible. After an interruption of the posting of at least one year, the five years start again.

Thus, the obligation to pay contributions in Brazil can be avoided in the future.

Health benefits are not covered by the agreement, i.e. health costs must be borne by the posting employer (it would make sense to take out supplementary insurance in this regard).

It is not yet clear when the agreement will come into force, but probably not before the end of 2022.
