Apply for a Schengen visa to Sweden through another EU Embassy
In countries where there is no Swedish Embassy, or the Embassy cannot issue Schengen visas, Sweden has so-called representation agreements with another EU state that can receive your application. Due to the covid-19 pandemic, most representation agreements have been temporarily suspended. If you live in a country where you cannot turn to another EU Embassy to apply for a visa to Sweden, you have the right to apply via any Swedish Embassy that processes visas.
It is possible to apply for a Schengen visa to Sweden here:
-Latvian Embassy in Astana, for residents of Kazakhstan
-Lithuanian Embassy in Almaty, for residents of Kazakhstan
-German Embassy in Yerevan, for residents of Armenia
-German Embassy in Tashkent, for residents of Uzbekistan
-German Embassy in Dushanbe, for residents of Tajikistan
