Visual material

The Information & Communication Staff Office has an archive of pictures on the most important topics. These include places or situations, for example the interior of federal asylum centres, interviews with asylum seekers or instances of repatriation, which are sensitive for personal security or data protection reasons. Therefore they may only be documented in exceptional circumstances and by a professional photographer mandated by SEM.
