New rules for passport check

The Swedish Migration Agency introduces new rules for better passport checks for residence permit applicants. 

From 1 November 2022, applicants for a residence permit must show their passport at an in-person visit before the Swedish Migration Agency can grant a permit. The Migration Agency will contact affected applicants to schedule an appointment with the Embassy or Consulate General for passport and identity control.
