Moving to someone in Sweden

If you want to move to Sweden to live with a close relative, you need a residence permit. A close relative may for instance be a husband or wife, a common law spouse or a child (a minor).

The waiting time for an interview for family reunification is currently about 1 month in Khartoum.

Other rules apply if you or the close relative in Sweden are citizens of an EU/EEA country (other than Sweden).


The quickest and easiest way to apply for a residence permit is to apply online over the Internet. An online application goes directly to the Swedish Migration Agency .

If you cannot or do not want to apply online, you can submit your application in person to the Embassy. You must contact the Embassy to schedule an appointment for the registration and interview of your case. Contact us by using our booking form below.
