About us

Welcome to the website of the Embassy of Sweden in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

In addition to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia the Embassy is accredited to the Sultanate of Oman and the Republic of Yemen. 

Our main task is to promote and strengthen the relations between Sweden and these countries in a wide range of areas. Political dialogue, trade, investment and promotion of Sweden as a modern prime business and tourist destination are priorities.

However, we do also contribute to further enhance the cooperation in such fields as education, research and culture. 

Furthermore, we provide consular service to Swedish nationals living in or visiting Saudi Arabia, Oman and Yemen as well as attending to visa and other migration related services for persons planning to visit Sweden.
