Use of the federal integration lump sum for temporarily admitted persons and refugees

State Secretariat for Migration

Key facts

Every year, the Confederation invests more than CHF 80 million in the integration of the population of asylum background. In 2018, the Confederation and the cantons adopted a shared vision to respond to parliamentary procedural requests and other findings of insufficient federal resources. Entitled “Swiss integration agenda”, this approach includes an increase in the federal integration lump sum per temporary admission or asylum decision, bringing it from CHF 6,000 to CHF 18,000. By 2019, the federal financial resources could thus rise by around CHF 132 million to more than CHF 210 million per year.
