If you want to visit Sweden and you are a citizen of a country outside the EU, you may need to apply for a visa.
Japanese citizens who go to Sweden as temporary visitors such as tourists can stay without a visa for a maximum of 90 days within a 180 day period.
The quickest and easiest way to apply for a visa is to apply online. Online applications are given priority, you can pay and make an appointment while applying and your compulsory visit to the embassy will go faster.
You also get access to the e-service ‘My page for e-visa’, where you can for instance change your appointment or see if your case decision has arrived.
If you cannot or do not want to apply online, you can submit your application documents in person at the Swedish embassy. An appointment is required.
