New law on intra-corporate transfer

On 1 March 2018, the new law on intra-corporate transfer, the so-called ICT Directive (Intra-Corporate Transfer), comes into force in Sweden. The directive applies to persons from a country outside the EEA and Switzerland, who will work as a manager, specialist or intern at the host company in Sweden.

The regulations in the ICT Directive are a part of the Aliens Act. On our website, you can read more about the terms for ICT permits and how to apply.

At present, employees are only able to apply via paper application forms, but later it will be possible to apply online. Due to unfortunate delays regarding the online application procedure, the online application will not be available in April as we informed earlier. More information will follow.
