The Swedish Migration Agency is here online to give anyone interested in migration issues a chance to find relevant information and news
The Swedish Migration Agency in social media
The Swedish Migration Agency's social media presence serves to explain the agency's mission and to provide information about migration to Sweden. We do this by publishing texts, short films and infographics as a complement to the facts published on our website. We also answer questions from the public. It is not possible for us to engage in exhaustive discussions, nor answer questions reguarding individual cases via social media. For personal questions or questions about your case, contact us via email or phone.
On Facebook we publish texts, short films and infographics about the Swedish Migration Agency's mission and about the migration to Sweden. Sometimes, the Migration Agency offers live-chats with agency specialists.

Our social media guidelines
You can submit your own posts and write comments on our posts. We address questions and comments during business hours on weekdays, but we do not address individual cases or other matters relating to individual persons. If you have personal questions, or questions about your case, we direct you to our e-service, email or telephone contacts.
Posts should stick to factual matters and maintain a proper tone. Show respect to your counterpart(s) in a debate.
We will not delete anything written by you or anyone else on the Migration Agency's Facebookpage, with the exception of activities that
- violate Swedish law or the rules of the social network
- contain sensitive personal data, are offensive or inflammatory, or violate individuals' privacy
- are irrelevant to the topic of the site
- are considered to be spam. Spam is when the same type of post is repeated with high frequency by one or a few senders
- comes from a sender that is clearly fake (for example, with a fictitious name)
- is primarily an advertising message for marketing purposes from an organization other than the Swedish Migration Agency.
Repeated violations of these rules may lead to blocking of functions or access to the site.
If you see anything that violates these rules, you can contact us by sending us a direct message, or by reporting it via the social network’s own system.
Responsibility and public documents
What is written on the Swedish Migration Agency’s social networks can become a public domain document. Never give out personal information here, such as a personal identity number or anything else related to an individual case. Instead, contact us by email or telephone for personal service.
If anyone other than the Swedish Migration Agency or our specialists on duty answers a given question, we take no responsibility for the post.
