Sweden & Bangladesh

Visiting Sweden

The Embassy of Sweden has the visa representation agreements with Finland, Iceland, Slovenia, Belgium, Latvia, Poland, Luxemburg and the Netherlands.

If you want to visit Sweden or any of the countries that Sweden represents for up to 90 days and you are a citizen of a country outside the EU, you may need to apply for a Schengen visa. For a list of countries whose citizens require visas to visit Sweden: click here.


The processing time for the Schengen Visa Applications may take up to 15 days or in some cases even longer. Therefore, plan well and submit your visa application well ahead of you planned travel dates, though at the earliest six months before your planned visit.

The easiest way to apply for a visa is to submit your Schengen visa application at:

VFS.Global Sweden Visa Application Centre, Borak Mehnur, Level 7, 51/B, Kemal Ataturk Avenue, Banani, Dhaka-1213. 


For inquiries please contact VFS Helpdesk at (+880) 09606 777 333 or e-mail to FeedbackSWBD@vfshelpline.com.

A service fee of 18.40 Euro (1725 BDT) will be charged by VFS.Global. The Visa fee, payable to the Embassy of Sweden can be paid in cash at the BRAC Bank booth in the Sweden Visa Application Centre, Dhaka with nominal fee of 230 BDT inclusive of VAT as payment processing fee.

You have to apply in person at VFS. Please observe that all visa applications are handled and decided by the Embassy of Sweden in Dhaka.

If you for some reason do not want to submit your application for Schengen visa at the VFS.Global you need an appointment provided by the Embassy in order to submit the application directly to the Embassy. Please send an e-mail to ambassaden.dhaka-visum@gov.se in order to get an appointment. 

Citizens of Bangladesh (and some other countries) need to go through a mandatory consultation procedure before they can be granted a visa. This is to verify that no member state objects to their entering the Schengen area. The consultation process may take up to 15 days to finalize and it cannot be sped up by the Embassy.
