If you want to move to Sweden to live with a close relative, you need a residence permit. The quickest and easiest way to apply for a residence permit is to apply online. An online application goes directly to the Swedish Migration Agency and is given priority. Please note that residence permits cannot be issued by the Embassy of Sweden in Pristina. If you cannot or do not want to apply over the Internet, you can fill in a paper form that you submit in person to the Embassy of Sweden in Skopje.
If you want to move to Sweden to live with a close relative, you need a residence permit. Other rules apply if you, or your close relative in Sweden, are citizens of an EU/EEA country (other than Sweden). A close relative may for instance be a husband or wife or a child (a minor).
As of 20 July 2016, a temporary act will limit the possibility for close relatives of persons in need of protection with temporary residence permits to immigrate to Sweden. More detailed information about these regulations is available on the Swedish Migration Agency website.
Moreover, the general rule is that anyone living in Sweden should be able to support themselves and their family members who may be granted residence permits. The maintenance requirement will not apply, under certain conditions, to those who have been granted residence permits in Sweden as persons in need of protection. One important requirement is that close relatives must apply for residence permits within three months of the date on which the person in need of protection was granted a residence permit.
