If you are not satisfied with the decision you have been given, you can appeal it. The appeal must be in writing, signed by you, and must be presented at or arrive at the embassy no later than 21 days after the date you received the decision.

The appeal must state:

  • Which decision you wish to appeal.
  • How you want the decision to be changed.
  • Your name, date of birth, postal address and telephone number.
  • Any circumstances, evidence or proof that you wish to add to your case.

If someone else signs the appeal on your behalf, that person must be authorised to represent you with a power of attorney. The power of attorney document must be signed by you and submitted in the original together with your appeal.

It is the deciding authority that initially decides whether to review the decision. The decision can be changed if new information comes in. If the deciding authority concludes to not change the decision, the case is forwarded to the Migration Court in Sweden. The waiting time for a decision from the Swedish Migration Court varies.
