foreign visitors half fare card - is an annual one available?

Hi all, can foreign visitors get a half fare card for a year, or are they limited to a one month only version? The sbb web site suggests a month only but i cannot find a definitive answer.

Thanks

Yes. They just need a swiss address for postage reasons. Both my parents and in-laws have halbtax cards.

What Carlos said, but don't forget to put their names as C/O your name and address, otherwise the postman won't deliver it.

Sounds like it's definitely better to go for a yearly one if you can.

One month tourist half-tax: CHF99
One year half-tax: CHF150

Hmmm . . . fleecing visitors slightly? Actually I suppose it's more that the yearly card is a very good deal.

My parents got theirs sent to their UK address. You can't do it online though you have to go the train station to do it.
