UK Pension to 3a move possible?

I saw there are a few threads that discuss moving a UK Pension to a QROPS scheme in Switzerland. But they all talk about moving it to Pillar 2 here.

But if one has a SIPP in the UK, couldn't you also transfer it to a Pillar 3a here? On the QROPS list on HMRC's website, there are quite a few Pillar 3a schemes listed under CH. I know there is an annual limit on 3a contributions, but this would be a transfer, not a new contribution. Or am I missing something obvious?

Thanks

If you have a SIPP why on earth would you want to change it, your making the investment decisions & you can invest pretty much as you want.
