POP-UPs for ID and Passport Controls

11 May 2023

POP-UPs for ID and passport controls to be conducted in July 2023 in the US and Canada for visa exempted applicants who applied for student or work permit.

On November 1st 2022, the Swedish Migration Agency introduced new procedures for stricter ID and passports controls in connection with applications for residence permits. Since November 1st, all applicants of a residence permit are required to visit the Embassy of Sweden in Washington DC in-person, before the Swedish Migration Agency can grant a decision on the application.

To make ID and passport controls more accessible for student and work permit applicants of American and Canadian citizenship, or other visa exempt citizen, Swedish authorities have decided to provide POP-UP ID and passport controls in four American cities and one Canadian city in mid-July 2023. These POP-UP ID and passport controls will be conducted by officials from the Swedish Migration Agency along with staff from the Embassy of Sweden in Washington DC.
