Order original documents or copies
On this page, you can request to get back original documents that you submitted, and order copies of documents from your own case. If you have a power of attorney from someone, you can also order documents from that person’s case.
With the form on this page, you can order documents that concern your case. You can, for example, request to get your passport back and order copies of documents from your case. If you have a power of attorney from another person, you can also request documents from that person’s case. You cannot attach the power of attorney with the form, but you will be asked to send it to us when we have received your order.
Access official documents
If you want to access official documents from a case that concerns somebody other than yourself and you do not have a power of attorney, you must instead use the contact channels described on the page for official documents.
Get your passport back
If you have handed in your passport in connection with an application for Swedish citizenship, you can request it back if you need it during the processing time. Use a special form for this:
Fee for copies of documents
It is free to access official documents on site at the Swedish Migration Agency’s premises. However, if you want copies, you must pay a fee according to the Fee Ordinance.
The Fee Ordinance requires the Swedish Migration Agency to charge a fee for copies of 10 pages or more. The first nine pages are free, the 10th page costs SEK 50 and thereafter every new page costs SEK 2. You will also need to pay postal charges for cash on delivery and postage.
It is important that you provide enough information so that we can find the information you are requesting and so that your request can be processed promptly.
If we receive enough information and can identify what document(s) you want, we will promptly process your request. If your request requires a more extensive secrecy assessment, the handling time may be longer.
If you are not sure what documents belong to the case, and which of them you want to request, you can start by requesting a so-called record sheet. Record sheets are available in a lot of cases, but not all. A record sheet is a list of all documents available in the case. Based on the information in the record sheet, it may be easier for you to specify which documents you want to request.
We send the documents in the post
The Swedish Migration Agency sends original documents, such as originals of identification documents, by registered letter. The documents are sent to your registered address, but you must collect the letter at your local postal agent. If you order original documents as a representative for another person, using a power of attorney, the documents are sent by registered letter to you. When you are to collect the letter, you need to have an approved form of identification.
If you order copies of documents from your case, such as copies of decisions, the copies are sent in the regular post to your nationally registered address or to the address that is registered with the Swedish Migration Agency. If you order copies as a representative for another person, using a power of attorney, the copies are sent to your address.
