Extension of temporary entry ban to the EU via Sweden due to COVID-19

Today the Government decided to extend the temporary entry ban to the EU via Sweden until 15 June. The decision was taken following a recommendation of the European Commission. The aim of the entry ban is, as previously, to mitigate the effects of the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and reduce the outbreak of COVID-19. 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.

    03 Dec 2019
    Lucia is a very special cultural tradition celebrated in Sweden on December 13, St. Lucia Day. Boys and girls of all ages dress up as Lucia maidens and star boys in white nightgowns, carrying candle light. They visit people's homes and churches to sing and bring light at a time when Sweden is at its darkest.
