This is just out of curiosity:
1. Can a Betreibung affect in any way a non-swiss citizen who is currently residing outside swiss and also the EU and is not a EU citizen either?
2. Can it ever affect travel/visa for other countries in the EU or any other place?
Note : I have an ongoing thing with Intrum Justitia (IJ) and I don't wish to pay them. Also since I am not in swiss anymore and don't want to return at least for another 6 yrs or so , I am not bothered if they go ahead the betreibung route.

A person's nationality is totally irrelevant for a Betreibung.
Anybody can be served with a Betreibung in Switzerland, however, I believe in order for this to actually be served, the person has to be resident in Switzerland at the exact time the Betreibungsamt is asked to serve it, for at that moment in time the Betreibungsamt will verify with the Einwohnerkontrolle of the Gemeinde where the alleged debtor has an address whether the person is currently a resident and at what address exactly.
If the person is not resident in Switzerland at that moment in time (has notified departure and has physically departed or was never a resident in the first place), I don't see how the Betreibung can be even be created, let alone served.
I doubt that a Betreibung can be served to someone who is resident in another country.
A Betreibung must not be served by ordinary post (although I do know of one case where it was), nor must it be delivered by registered letter. In theory it should be delivered exclusively in person. So it wouldn't be sent on to you through the post to your country.
A Betreibung ought not to have any consequences for other countries such as in the EU, as the process concerns wholly persons residing in Switzerland.
If the person has already been served with a Betreibung and then departs, this is a different matter, as the procedure is underway, but whether the procedure can then continue without you being present I am not sure.
