Infor­ma­tion regar­ding COVID-19

The spread of COVID-19 is a unique situation with consequences that affect our society, and the rest of the world, thus also the Swedish Migration Agency and our activities.

Impor­tant infor­ma­tion if you are plan­ning to visit the Swedish Migra­tion Agency

The Swedish Migration Agency have implemented several measures to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19. We have reduced the number of people who can visit our receptions simultaneously, we have put up plexiglass at the service desks and in our investigation rooms, and urge anyone who shows any symptoms of COVID-19 to stay at home.

The conditions for making physical visits to us can be different depending on which office you are planning to visit. Therefore, it is important that you stay up to date on what applies at your local office before your visit.

Here is a list of the locations of the Swedish Migration Agency and what applies to each office.

We appreciate your understanding in the matter. Together, we can slow down the spreading of the infection!

Other ques­tions

The Swedish Migration Agency only works with voluntary return, and will continue to carry out the execution of deportations as far as possible. Travel restrictions and greatly reduced number of available journeys affect our work, however the agency has not stopped its work on returning.

If you request to have your application fee returned, this will be considered in accordance with the Fees Ordinance (STS 1992:191). An assessment is made in each case and depends on whether or not we have begun the handling of your case.

You can submit the application but need to add a valid travel document as soon as possible for the Migration Agency to make a decision. A possible decision from your home country that the passport should be valid longer than stated in the passport is not accepted by Sweden.
