The Swedish Migration Agency recommends that you apply for residence permits online in order to handle your case more efficiently, although it is possible to submit an application at the embassy if absolutely necessary.

To submit a paper application, you have to request an appointment at the embassy.
First, in order to apply for a work permit, you must have an offer of employment in Sweden. Basically, your employer in Sweden initiates the work permit application by completing an offer of employment. Your employer needs information about your name, date of birth, citizenship, education and your email address.

The Migration Section at the embassy will respond to your request as soon as possible depending on its availability.
Once the Swedish Migration Agency has made a positive decision in your case, a residence permit card will be produced and sent to the embassy. The time between manufacture and arrival of the card takes between three and four weeks.
When the card has arrived at the embassy, you will receive an automated email. You can then pick it up any Thursday (except public holidays) between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. (during the month of Ramadan between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m.). A reservation is not necessary.
If you would like to pick it up at another embassy or in Sweden, please let us know after you have received the automated email. It will take an additional three to four weeks for your card to arrive at the other embassy.
