Swedish citizens who have never held a Swedish passport, id-card or been registered with the Swedish Population Register must get a coordination number (e.g. an ID number) approved before applying for a Swedish passport. This applies also to newborn children to Swedish citizens.
NB: The Embassy can order coordination numbers for Swedish citizens only if you intend to also apply for a passport via the Embassy. If you are planning to apply for a passport in Sweden you should also apply for the coordination number in Sweden through the Swedish Police.
If the parents/guardians have not registered the name of the child, this will be done at the same time as the application for a coordination number. Name registration can also be done directly with the Swedish Tax Authority, more information here.
Please note that for a child born before 1 April 2015 to a Swedish father and a non-Swedish mother and where the parents are not legally married they must first submit a Notification of Swedish citizenship.
Please note that all documents must be original and fully completed upon arrival to your booked appointment.
*If it says "There are no more available appointments at the moment." at the top of the booking page, it means that no bookable appointments are available. Please check back at a later time.
Appointments to apply for a coordination number can only be made online via the external booking system, e.g. you cannot book an appointment via telephone or by visiting the Embassy. Appointments are released continuously, but not on any given day or time. If no appointments show up in the booking system, it means that we are currently fully booked.
Once you have booked an appointment you must bring all the documents specified above for your application to be considered. Please make sure you have received a booking confirmation of your appointment before visiting the Embassy.
If you plan to travel to Sweden, do consider applying through the Swedish Police. Please contact the police before your travel to find out what documents you must provide and if you need to book an appointment.
The processing time is approximately 10-12 weeks. Once a decision has been made, you will be notified by the Swedish Tax Authority directly.
Once a decision on coordination number has been made, you can book an appointment for passport application using the same external booking system as specified above.
