Passports / National ID-card for adults

Book your appointment online. We release new appointments for the weeks to come, every Friday, between 9am and 12pm. If there is a text on the booking page saying "no appointments available", please check back later.

You can apply for/renew a passport or ID card at the Embassy of Sweden in London, in another Swedish Embassy or at the Police in Sweden. If you apply for a passport in another country you can still collect it from the Embassy in London. If you want to collect your passport at a consulate you need to contact the Embassy.

It is often a faster och cheaper process to apply for a passport in Sweden, more info about this on the Swedish Police's webbsite.

You are obliged to prove your Swedish citizenship every time you apply for or renew your passport. For more information about Swedish citizenship please check the Swedish Migration Agency. 

Download and complete the application form "Verification of Swedish Citizenship" before arriving at the Embassy. The Swedish Police's form is not used at the Embassy in London.
