Renewal of passport for adults

Passport application only after appointment

Before submitting an application you must book an appointment. It will not be possible for us to see you without an appointment. Bookings can be made by sending us an e-mail or calling us during our phone hours. 

Always give your full Swedish ID - number (personnummer/samordningsnummer) when you phone or e mail the consular section. Without your ID number we cannot find you in the system.

The fee for an ordinary passport or a national ID-card is paid in local currency.

The processing time is normally about 3-4 weeks and you must collect your passport in person at the Embassy. Don't forget to bring your old passport when you collect your new one. If it is out of date you need to bring another valid photo ID. If you do not have a valid photo ID you must bring a close relative who is Swedish with a valid photo ID to identify you.

The passport must be collected within six months or it will be invalidated and the fee forfeited.


  • A completed application form. (Can be downloaded here)
  • A booked appointment
  • Your previous passport. (We will not keep the passport during the processing time.)
  • If your passport has been lost or stolen, this must be reported to the police and the police report submitted to the Embassy when you apply.
