All passport applicants must visit the Embassy of Sweden in Ottawa to be digitally photographed and fingerprinted on site at the time of the application. Children under 6 years of age are exempt from fingerprints. Please note that passports for children under the age of 12 are valid for 3 years. Appointments must be booked in advance.
Applications for children under 18 who have never previously had a Swedish passport must first apply for and obtain a coordination number. This application can be filed at all Swedish consulates in Canada in addition to the Embassy in Ottawa.
Once the Coordination Number (samordningsnummer) has been obtained, the child can apply for a passport. The passport can only be applied for at the Embassy in Ottawa. Appointments must be booked in advance by clicking here.
Please be mindful of provincial restrictions due to the pandemic and only book an appointment if you are in urgent need of a new passport.
The child must be accompanied by a legal guardian and the following documents, original documents or notarized copies, are required at the time of application:
If the Swedish father is not married to the foreign mother and the child is born before April 1, 2015, you need documentation from the Swedish Migration Board stating that the child is a Swedish citizen.
The application fee is payable by debit card, credit card or in cash at the time of application.
The new passport is normally ready in approximately 1-3 weeks from the time of application. It must be picked up in person by a legal guardian or the applicant, if he or she is 15 or older and has been permitted by the legal guardian to do so at the time of application and it has been duly noted.
The passport may be picked up at the Embassy in Ottawa or at any Swedish Consulate in Canada (at an additional cost).
Please note that it is the applicant's responsibility to prove his/her Swedish citizenship and to present all the requested documents.
