Paper applications, submitted from 3 May, will now be handled in the same way as an application in the e-service (online application). This means that there will no longer be an interview in connection with the paper application being submitted.

The appli­ca­tion is sent to the Swedish Migra­tion Agency before the inter­view is completed

The embassy or consulate-general will only receive the application, application fee and related documents and forward it to the Swedish Migration Agency. Once the Swedish Migration Agency has started to process your case, the applicant for a residence permit will receive a notification to make an appointment for an interview at the embassy or consulate. In connection with that visit, the applicant will also be photographed, provide fingerprints and passport and other original documents will be checked.

The new proce­dure only applies to new paper appli­ca­tions

Anyone who already has an appointment for an interview at an embassy or consulate-general before 3 May will conduct their interview during the booked visit. This applies even if the time of the booked visit is later on, i.e. 3 May or later.

Feel free to apply via the e-service

If the person who wants to apply for a residence permit to move to you in Sweden applies in the e-service, all information will be sent to the Swedish Migration Agency directly. The processing can then be started more quickly as the application does not need to be sent to Sweden from the embassy or consulate.

You can also ask the person who is moving to you for a power of attorney. You can then submit the application in the e-service for him or her.
