Behind every number is a human being

People move to Sweden for various different reasons. It might be to study or to work, to visit relatives and friends or because they have met a partner they want to share their life with. No matter the reason, each migrant’s journey is unique.

Our mission

The Swedish Migration Agency's mission includes considering applications from people who want to live in Sweden, visit the country, seek protection from persecution or be granted Swedish citizenship.

The Swedish Migration Agency is commissioned by parliament and government, who set the Swedish asylum and migration policy. We are thus commissioned by the Swedish people, through the politicians who make decisions on migration policy.
