The Swiss Customs Museum will reopen on Easter Sunday, 31 March 2024, with two new exhibitions: "Migration – a photo exhibition by Darrin Zammit Lupi" and a revamped exhibition on species protected by CITES. The museum is located on the shores of Lake Lugano in Cantine di Gandria.

The photo exhibition is part of the 30th anniversary celebrations of the Swiss branch of the International Organisation for Migration (IOM). The Federal Office for Customs and Border Security (FOCBS) is responsible for combating irregular migration in Switzerland.

In 2023, over fifty thousand cases of illegal residence were detected, mostly involving migrants from Afghanistan, Morocco, and Turkey. Darrin Zammit Lupi is a photojournalist known for documenting migration projects and conflicts around the world.

IOM Switzerland focuses on voluntary return and reintegration support for asylum seekers, provisionally admitted persons, and recognised refugees. The revamped exhibition on species protected by CITES highlights the commitment of 184 countries to protecting endangered animals and plants.

The FOCBS monitors the import, export, and transit of protected species and their products according to CITES regulations. For media inquiries, contact the Media Service at the Federal Office of Customs and Border Security..
