So you may have to provide certain information at border or other controls. You may, for instance, have to provide information on your means of support, how long you intend to stay in Sweden, and why you are visiting Sweden. In some cases, such checks may result in a refusal for the visa holder to enter Sweden or the Schengen area. As soon as you receive your passport with a Schengen visa, make sure that all the information it contains is correct.
You can find more information under ‘General Schengen visa information’.
