Extension of temporary entry ban to Sweden until 31 August 2020 and easing of restrictions for more travellers
To mitigate the effects of the spread of COVID-19 and reduce the outbreak, a temporary ban on entry to the EU via Sweden is in force. On 2 July the Government decided to extend the entry ban until 31 August 2020. At the same time, the Government decided to ease the restrictions for more travellers.
Due to the coronavirus and the temporary entry ban to Sweden, the Swedish Migration Agency has decided that the majority of visa applications will be rejected. This applies if you wish to visit Sweden and are a citizen of a country outside the EU.
From August 3, 2020, applicants from Indonesia can submit their Schengen visa applications at VFS Global in Jakarta or Bali. The visa applications are sent to the Swedish Embassy in Bangkok for decision.
