About us

Welcome to the Embassy of Sweden in Yerevan, Armenia, which opened in March 2014. The Ambassador of Sweden to Armenia is H.E. Mr. Patrik Svensson.

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.

The Embassy does not issue visas or process any applications for visas, residence or work permits. Questions related to Schengen visas to Sweden should be addressed to the German Embassy in Yerevan, which issues Schengen visas for Sweden. The contact information of the German Embassy can be found here: www.eriwan.diplo.de

For questions about residence or work permits, or any other types of visas (e.g. national D-visa to Sweden), please contact the Embassy of Sweden in Moscow: www.swedenabroad.se/moscow
