About us

Welcome to the Embassy of Sweden in Yerevan, Armenia, which opened in March 2014. The Ambassador, H.E. Mr. Ulrik Tideström, is resident in Tbilisi, Georgia. Ambassador-Designate of Sweden to the Republic of Armenia, Mr. Patrik Svensson, remains in expectation of his official accreditation.

In 2013, the Swedish Government decided to upgrade the Swedish presence in Armenia by opening an Embassy in Yerevan.

A permanent Swedish presence in Armenia represented by an Embassy makes it easier for Swedish authorities to follow the political and economic developments in the country and to strengthen the overall bilateral relations between Armenia and Sweden, also related to trade and investments.

In 2019, Sweden decided to re-establish a window for bilateral development cooperation with Armenia. There are three main areas of cooperation: economic integration with the EU and development of market economy; strengthened democracy and respect for human rights; and better environment and reduced climate impact. Deputy Head of Mission, Counsellor, Mrs. Izabella Eriksson, is contracted for development cooperation related operations.

Due to its limited size, the Embassy of Sweden in Yerevan does not handle applications for residence or work permits. Regarding these issues we ask you please to contact the Embassy of Sweden in Moscow.  Questions about how to apply for a visa to Sweden can be addressed to the Embassy of Germany, the Schengen representative, in Armenia.
