Visa for visiting Sweden

To mitigate the effects of the spread of COVID-19 and reduce the outbreak, a temporary ban on entry to the EU via Sweden is in force.

Please read more about a temporary ban here. 

In order to visit Sweden, citizens of Uganda and other countries need an entry visa. An entry visa is a permit required by persons wishing to enter Sweden for a temporary visit, for example:

  • as a tourist
  • on business 
  • to take part in a conference or 
  • to visit relatives and friends
