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.
