The visa process
Visa and residence permits
A visa to enter Sweden for a period of maximum three months is required for citizens of some countries; check with the nearest Swedish embassy or consulate in your country of residence.
If you plan to stay in Sweden longer than three months and are not a citizen of a Nordic country, you will need to contact the Swedish Migration Board, Migrationsverket. Students and researchers from EU/EEA countries may contact the Migration Board after they arrive in Sweden, but must do so no later than three months after entry. There is no cost to register the right of residence for EU/EEA citizens and it is valid as long as you reside in Sweden and fulfill the requirements specified on the Migration Board’s website.
More information on how to apply and documentation requirements is available on the Migration Board’s website
