Passports for adults 18 years and older

All passport applicants must apply in person at the Embassy of Sweden in Ottawa. Appointments must be booked in advance. It normally takes 4-5 weeks for your passport to be ready. You can pick up your passport at the Embassy in Ottawa or at one of our consulates in Canada (at an additional cost). Please note you must pick up the passport in person.

A change of name must be registered with the Swedish Tax Authority (Skatteverket) before applying for a new passport. Passports issued are based on the current information in the Population registry.

  • If you were born outside Sweden to a Swedish parent and you have not regularly visited Sweden nor lived there, a decision from Migrationsverket (the Swedish Migration Agency) stating that you can keep your Swedish citizenship. Application should be made between 18 - 22nd birthday.
