Passports - Sweden Abroad
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 typically about 8 weeks but may be as long as 12 weeks during peak season.
The application is free of charge and can be filed at the Embassy of Sweden in Washington D.C. and all Swedish consulates in the U.S. The child must be present when the application is filed, and must be accompanied by at least one legal guardian/parent. Processing time is typically about 6-8 weeks but may be as long as 12 weeks during peak season.
> Keep in mind that if you do not plan to apply for a Swedish passport for your child, you may not apply for a coordination number. You can then instead send a name application directly to the Tax Agency in Sweden.

You cannot yourself certify the copy. We recommended that you bring original documents of all required documentation, including IDs.
