“Persons who have received a negative decision on their visa application are requested to hand in their own appeals to the Embassy either by mail, e-mail or in person in our postal box”.
The deadline for handing in an appeal is within three weeks from the date that you received the decision. The Embassy will, if not reconsidering the decision that was made, send your appeal to the Swedish Migration Court in Gothenburg for their second opinion i.e. possible reconsideration. This is normal procedure when Sweden is representing another Schengen country in Schengen visa matters. It is thus a Swedish court that will look at the appeal. The court may also decide to refuse the appeal. Please be informed that this process may take a few weeks and that the Embassy of Sweden cannot speed up the process. The Migration Court will contact you when they have reached a decision on your appeal.
The appeal must state:
Which decision you wish to appeal.
How you want the decision to be changed.
Your name, date of birth, postal address and telephone number.
Any circumstances or evidence/proof that you wish to add to your case.
If someone else signs the appeal on your behalf, that person must be authorised to represent you (power of attorney). The power of attorney document must be signed by you and submitted in the original together with your appeal.
If you have any further enquiries about the status of the appeal you will need to contact the Swedish Migration Court in Gothenburg which you may do through these contact details: By mail: Förvaltningsrätten i Göteborg, Sten Sturegatan 14, 411 39 Göteborg, Sweden. By telephone +46-(0)31-732 70 00.
Or by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
