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 for passport and identity control. The check will not be performed before the applicant has received such an email from the Migration Agency.

The Embassy is open for check of passports and biometrics for residence permits cards on Tuesdays and Thursdays 9am-12pm. No appointment is necessary.

Bring your passport and if you are doing a passport check, originals of the documents you submitted in your application.
