Normal contribution rules and caps apply

Section: 10.6

The normal non-concessional contributions caps will apply to the transfer of overseas pensions into Australian super funds, as outlined in the table above. Additionally, if the member is age 65 or over, they will need to meet the work test to contribute or transfer an amount of foreign super, while transfers will generally not be possible from age 75 regardless of work status.

The above Australian tax rules apply to transfers and withdrawal of foreign super from any country.
