How to apply


In order to visit Sweden, you may need an entry visa.  An entry visa is a permit for a maximum of 90 days required for persons wishing to enter Sweden for a temporary visit.

To apply for your visa in South Africa, you need to be a legally resident here.

Your visa application should be submitted to the Visa Application Centre operated by VFS Global in South Africa. 

Online applications are not possible from South Africa.

Submissions of visa applications can no longer be made at the Embassy.   

When visiting the Visa Application Centre at the appointed time, please bring your passport together with application form and all additional documents.  If you do not have all the documents with you, there is a risk that your application will be rejected.
