Application Visa

If you are travelling to Sweden and live in Shanghai, Zhejiang, Jiangsu or Anhui, you can apply for Schengen visa by the Consulate General of Sweden in Shanghai.

We recommend all applicants to submit their Schengen visa application through VFS Global. Visit the VFS Global’s website for more information about the application centres addresses, opening hours and for other practical information.

If you for some reason cannot apply through VFS Global, you can submit your application in person at the Consulate General. Applications submitted at the Consulate General of Sweden in Shanghai are by appointment only.

Please note that this is only applicable for applicants who are residing within the Consulate’s jurisdiction (Shanghai, Zhejiang, Jiangsu and Anhui). Kindly include information about your full name and cell phone number in your appointment request. The appointment request can be sent to the Consulate General by e-mail:

Please note that the Consulate General of Sweden in Shanghai is not authorised to process Schengen visa applications from non-Chinese nationals who do not have a valid permit for residence in the People’s Republic of China and who lack justification for lodging an application here.
