Warning about fraud

30 Dec 2019

Information regarding visa fraud.

It has come to our attention that applicants in the region have been contacted by sellers who claim that they can issue visas for Sweden. Decisions in visa cases are taken only by the Swedish Embassy in New Delhi (and Norwegian Embassy in New Delhi regarding applications from Sri Lanka). Applications for residence permits are handled by the Swedish Migration Agency.

Please note that the embassy only cooperates with VFS Global in India and Nepal (and in Sri Lanka applications for Schengen visas to Sweden are submitted at VFS Global in Colombo and handled by the Norwegian Embassy in New Delhi). The embassy has nothing to do with sellers outside the premises of the embassy or the VFS Global office who offer services for payment. No sellers can influence either the processing period or the decision.
