Waiting times for a Swedish autho­rity abroad (embassy, consu­late or equi­va­lent)

The waiting time for conducting an investigation at an embassy or consulate-general is a part of the total waiting time. Therefore, if you are going to visit a Swedish authority abroad that has a long waiting time, it may take longer until you get your decision.
