RAV payment if leaving to search abroad

I have heard at some point (do not recall where/when) that if a foreign resident (I have a B permit) becomes unemployed and is eligible to receive payments from the RAV, then that person may elect to search for permanent work outside of Switzerland on an unrestricted basis, in return for accepting only 3 months of RAV payments. Does anyone know anything about this?

Re: RAV payment if leaving to search abroad

I don't know if it is still the case, but it used to be that once you'd started to receive payment from RAV, you could move to an EU country and have the RAV payment from their social system for three months, after which you'd transfer to the local system.

If you search for posts by Evilshell, she discusses it in a few places. This was quite a few years ago, though, so things may have changed (but I've not heard anything).
