Information about the handling of visa and migration issues during Covid-19

01 Nov 2021

This page accounts for the reduced services in migration related cases and the measures taken by the Embassy of Sweden Tehran to reduce the spread of covid-19.

For general information about the entry ban to Sweden, which includes Iranian travelers, please click here.

Due to the spread of covid-19 the embassy has decided to temporarily reduce some services in migration related cases. A reduced number of interviews in residence permit cases are being conducted since the beginning of 2021, for more information please click here.

No ordinary applications for Schengen visas from Iran will be processed at the moment. There is no exemption for people who can show that they have been vaccinated against covid-19. In some emergency cases the embassy can receive an application for an emergency visa, valid for maximum 15 days. Emergency trips only include travel to take part in a funeral of a close relative, or to visit a close relative who is receiving palliative care near the end of his/her life. Parents, children, and siblings are considered close relatives.

Residence permit cards (UT-cards) can be collected through a prescheduled appointment at the Embassy. For more information about residence permit cards, please click here.

Iranian, Iraqi and Afghan citizens with concluded residence permit cases can request an appointment for biometrics through our webpage. Available timeslots are distributed in the following order of priority:

  1. Applicants granted a permit to study/work, whose permits are at risk of being revoked.
  2. Applicants granted a permit to study/work.
  3. Applicants granted a permit as a family member of someone residing in Sweden.

All visits require you to book an appointment. To book an appointment with the migration section, please click here. The Migration section can be contacted by e-mail:
