Order of a coordination number in Hong Kong

Newborn children and people who have never been in the possession of a Swedish passport, ID card or been registered in Sweden must apply for a coordination number before being able to apply for a Swedish passport or ID card. If the guardians to a newborn child have not registered a name, this will be done at the same time.

If you are a resident in Hong Kong or Macau, you can book an appointment to apply for a coordination number at the Consulate. Times available are on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Please note that the Consulate only requisites a coordination number if you intend to apply for a passport through the Consulate in Hong Kong. If you are planning to apply for a passport in Sweden you should also apply for the coordination number in Sweden through the police or the Swedish Tax Agency. Please observe that only those residing in Hong Kong and Macau can apply for a coordination number through the Consulate. For those residing in Mainland China, coordination numbers are requisitioned at the Swedish Embassy in Beijing.
