Your application fee will not be refunded if your application is refused. An application for a permanent residence permit must be submitted at the same time as an application for an extension of a residence permit and costs nothing extra.

Paying online:

When you apply online, you pay the fee with a credit card in connection with the application. The same applies if you are applying to extend your permit. The card must be enabled for Internet payment. Contact your bank for more information. 

For more information, please visit the Swedish Migration Agency website.

Paying at the Embassy or consulate general

If you are applying at an embassy or consulate-general, you pay the fee when you hand in your application.

For more information about the fee, ontact the embassy or consulate-general where you are applying, as they do not have the same fees and terms of payment as the Swedish Migration Agency.


The Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs has been informed that there might be individuals falsely representing the Swedish Migration Agency or the Embassy in certain countries. These individuals are claiming that it is possible e.g. through payment, to obtain an earlier appointment for an interview at the Embassy or that the applicants needs to pay an additional fee for booking an interview at a specific Embassy - sometimes even using official letterheads and pretending to be officials.

Please note that the Swedish Embassies and Consulates General have nothing to do with any individuals who offer services for payment. All appointments for interviews for family reunification are made through the Embassies and are free of charge.  Please visit the Swedish Migration Agency webpage for more information.

Please contact the Embassy if you have any information that people are falsely representing Swedish authorities or if you suspect that somebody is trying to sell you services for additional charges  on the following email: ambassaden.nairobi-visum@gov.se.
