The web portal Workinginsweden.se provides a step-by-step guide to the Swedish migration process. It is aimed mainly at non-EU/EEA citizens interested in working in Sweden for at least one year. The portal also describes some of the advantages of a work life in Sweden. EU citizens and non-EU/EEA citizens interested in working in Sweden for less than one year can also find useful information about working and living in Sweden on the portal.
