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, e-mail 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, 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.

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 e-mail 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.
