Introduction of an online application for residence permits for visits

Starting February 15, 2024, applicants are to submit their applications for residence permits for visits through an e-application on the website of the Swedish Migration Agency. Applying online shortens the total waiting time since applications will be handled digitally and no longer sent by mail from a mission abroad to the Swedish Migration Agency. A digital application is submitted via the Swedish Migration Agency website and you pay with credit/debit card. Read more about how to submit you application below. After having submitted an application through the e-service, applicants will be contacted, by e-mail, with information on the next steps.
