Moving to someone in Sweden

As of 1st of September 2019 all the migration related matters that are currently handled by the Embassy in Ankara will be transferred to the Consulate General of Sweden in Istanbul. The purpose is to gather all expertise at one mission to create more efficient and specialized migration service for persons legally residing in Turkey and who are planning to visit or settle in Sweden.

In order to finalize all the initiated cases, the Embassy in Ankara will scale down the handling of migration related cases gradually. This means that it won´t be possible to contact the Embassy after the 14th of June to book a time for an interview.  It also means that applicants may be referred to the General Consulate of Sweden in Istanbul if they want to hand in an application directly at a Swedish mission during the transition time.
