Terms of use for the Swedish Migration Agency's e-services

Through this service, you will have access to the Swedish Migration Agency's online applications. To use this service, you need to create an account with the Swedish Migration Agency. When you start using the service, you agree to the terms of use and commit to following them. However, the terms do not apply if anything to the contrary follows from binding regulation. Decisions in your case may be made by automated processing.

Processing of personal data

The Swedish Migration Agency processes personal data collected in this context. The Swedish Migration Authority processes personal data in accordance with, inter alia, the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Swedish Migration Agency's register regulation -- i.e., the Act on the Personal Data of Aliens (2016:27). The Act on the Personal Data of Aliens contains, inter alia, provisions whereby the personal data may be processed without you, as data subject, having to give your consent.

Respon­si­bi­lity of the Swedish Migra­tion Agency

Personal data is collected by the Swedish Migration Agency, which is the data controller and is responsible for the processing of personal data in this service. We are also responsible for checking to ensure that the information you use when logging in is correct.

There may be exceptions in cases where the personal data is being processed by another public authority or organisation.

The service is provided as is, and without guarantees regarding errors, quality or accessibility for use.

Proces­sing of personal data at another autho­rity or orga­ni­sa­tion

Processing can also be done at another public authority or organisation, provided that this authority or organisation has the right to process the personal data in question. In such cases, the authority or organisation in question can be responsible for the processing of personal data.

Purpose of proces­sing

The Swedish Migration Agency processes your personal data for a number of purposes. The Swedish Migration Agency saves personal data so that it will be possible to carry out the application process, i.e. to process a case concerning e.g. reception or settlement. Furthermore, the Swedish Migration Agency will process your personal data to identify you as part of the processes of compiling statistics, registration, follow-up, planning, retrieval of decisions, disclosure of data to other authorities, and performing checks. Your personal data is also used in the register of applicants, and in archiving.

What data

The data that the Swedish Migration Agency intends to collect and process includes, but is not limited to: name, personal identity number, address, contact details and other information necessary in e.g. the processing of a case.

Transfer of personal data

After being examined, your personal data may be disclosed, to parties that need to access the data due to a legal obligation, for a purpose of general interest such as the collection of statistical data, or for a purpose connected with the exercise of the functions of a public authority where it is necessary to process the data. The Swedish Migration Agency may forward personal data provided via the website if the Agency is the wrong authority for the information to be addressed to, and it should be passed on in order to end up with the right recipient. The transfer of personal data takes place in accordance with personal data or confidentiality legislation.


You have the right to receive information from the Swedish Migration Agency regarding what data about you is processed, and you can request correction, transfer, deletion or restriction of your personal data.
