The State Secretariat for Migration (SEM) has informed the cantons of its asylum forecast for 2023, as it wrote in a statement on Tuesday. The federal government with the support of the SEM through the army, civil service and the Federal Office for Customs and Border Security as well as cantons, cities and municipalities would continue to work closely together.

The SEM expects an above-average number of new asylum applications to continue. In the most likely “medium” scenario, there would be 27,000 new applications, in the almost as likely “high” scenario, 35,000 to 40,000.
