Sweden & Turkey

Visit for longer than 90 days


  • Applying for a visitor’s permit

If you are planning to stay longer than 90 days, you need to apply for a visitor's permit. An application for a visitor's permit is always sent to the Migration Agency in Sweden, where the decision is made.

  • Applying for a National visa due to special circumstances

A national visa (D-visa) is only issued in exceptional cases. According to the law special circumstances must apply in your case. Note that a family visit is not considered special circumstances, neither that the processing time for a visitor's permit might be longer. The fact that you have previously been granted a D-visa does not automatically mean that you can get a new one.
