The mobile passport stations have been affected by major technical issues. Despite a thorough troubleshooting process, the problems cannot be solved and the mobile passport service will no longer be available. Swedish passport and national ID-card applications can be submitted at the Embassy of Sweden in Washington, D.C. or at the Consulate General of Sweden in New York.
To be able to apply for a passport for a child born abroad, your child must first have been assigned a coordination number. An embassy/consulate will request a coordination number based on the child's name application, which is submitted in person at an embassy/consulate. Processing time is about 6-8 weeks.
The application is free of charge and can be filed at all Swedish consulates in the U.S., as well as at the Embassy of Sweden in Washington D.C. The child must be present when the application is filed, and must be accompanied by at least one legal guardian/parent. Processing time is 6-8 weeks.
> Keep in mind that if you do not plan to apply for a Swedish passport for your child, you do not need a coordination number! You can then instead send a name application directly to the Tax Agency.
