If you plan to study less than 91 days in Sweden you may apply for a Schengen visa at the Embassy or VFS Global when they have reopened.

At the moment the Embassy can give an appointment for interview and biometrics within 2-5 weeks

If you are visiting the Embassy for any reason, such as, submission of additional documents or interview, you have to follow the following health instructions:

  • If you have booked an appointment and you or your child/children have any symptoms of illness, you will not be admitted into the Embassy. If someone is ill, you must contact the Embassy in order to cancel your appointment. Needless to say, the cancellation should be done before the actual appointment.
  • If you have 37,5 degrees Celsius or higher you will not be allowed to enter. Your temperature will be measured before entering
  • The Embassy will establish a list of visitors daily and if you are not on that list you will not be allowed to enter. When you book an appointment you have to mention if someone need to accompany you into the Embassy and why – also provide full names, correctly spelled, of the accompanying person and of course your own personal information. The Embassy will then decide if it is necessary or not, before the date of the appointment. If the Embassy finds it to be legitimate, the accompanying person will be put on the list. You also need to submit names of custodians/ holders of power of attorney if  accompanying minor child/children that will apply for a Swedish passport, visa or a residence permit or to be interviewed. Only child/children who has an appointment to apply for a passport will be admitted to the Embassy - if you have other children they must stay outside the premises.
  •  If you need an interpreter, i.e. you speak neither Swedish nor English (or Swahili if Migration matters), please let us know and the Embassy will book an interpreter - neither relatives nor friends will be admitted to interpret.
  • All visitors are obliged to wear face mask at all time, while in the Embassy´s premises. However, when entered into the waiting area you are required to wash your hands and keep your hands sanitized at all times.
