    I will be on a contract in South America for the next 3 - 5 years.

    Can anyone tell me if I can continue to pay into my Super from overseas?

    Cheers,

    If your contributing to a SMSF then you will have a problem and there is a 2 year residency test requirement were the control must remain within Australia.

    Should be no problem if you are in a retail or industry fund.
