New rules for better passport checks for residence permits

01 Nov 2022

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.

This can be done during the Migration Section’s opening hours without prior appointment. Biometrics (fingerprints and photograph) may be taken at the same time.
