Applications for residence permit in Sweden, including all claims that refer to asylum, immigration and protection are processed by the Swedish Migration Agency. An application for asylum shall not be submitted at a Swedish mission abroad (at an Embassy/consulate) but at one of the Migration Agency application units, or with the border police when entering Sweden. Those who are not able to come to Sweden for protection are advised to contact the UNHCR or the relevant authorities in their country of residence. Furthermore, it is not possible for the Migration Agency to grant asylum to an individual who is not present in Sweden.

Passport control upon entering Lebanon
Lebanese Immigration Authorities check all visitors’ names on arrival against a database of those wanted for, or convicted of, offences in Lebanon. If a name matches against an entry on the database the individuals may be detained (or on occasion allowed entry upon surrender of their passport) until they can prove that the record does not relate to them. It’s often possible to prove personal details by presenting a copy of a birth certificate or other official documentation that allows parents’ names to be checked against the database. You should consider carrying this kind of supporting documentation when you travel to Lebanon.
When a document is needed abroad it must often be legalized.
WHAT IS LEGALIZATION?
Legalization is a confirmation that the signature on a document is genuine. The actual legalization process consists of a stamp and a signature. Legalization does not have anything to do with the contents of a document.
The Embassy of Sweden in Beirut can only legalize the following documents:
- An original document or a true copy, if the original is not available, with signature by the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs or by the competent Lebanese authorities. The documnet has to be translated into English by a sworn translator.
- Personal certificate stamped by the Tax Office in Sweden and with signature by the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
For further information about legalization of documents issued in Sweden please visit the following website: http://www.regeringen.se/sveriges-regering/utrikesdepartementet/legaliseringar/
The Embassy charges a fee of 23 USD for each legalization. Payments are to be done in USD.
DELIVERY OF DOCUMENTS FOR LEGALIZATION
Legalized documents can be picked up at the Embassy the day after submission. You submit the documents during opening hours which you can find here.
