For you who are going to visit someone in a detention centre
All visits must be booked in advance. You must contact the person you are going to visit at the detention centre, as only he or she can book an appointment for the visit. The Swedish Migration Agency normally allows a maximum of two adult visitors at a time. In some cases, the Swedish Migration Agency may decide that the visit should be monitored. This means that the Swedish Migration Agency's staff will be present during the visit. In some cases, the Swedish Migration Agency may deny the detained person visitors.
At the detention centre there are lockable lockers where you as a visitor can leave any outerwear, bags or other items, before your visit can begin. Once you arrive you will receive information about the detention centre’s local rules and procedures.
Everything you bring with you must be approved
Everything you take with you to give to someone who has been detained must be approved by the Swedish Migration Agency. A person who has been detained cannot without permission have alcoholic beverages, other intoxicants or objects that can be used to harm someone else or injure oneself with.
