Incomplete birthdate on some LMA-cards

Due to a technical error, LMA-cards ordered between 15 June and 13 July 2020 do not have a complete date of birth.

Due to a technical error, LMA-cards ordered between 15 June and 13 July 2020 do not have a complete date of birth. These cards say YYYYMM, instead of YYMMDD in the place of the applicant’s date of birth. The error has been rectified, and cards ordered after 13 July are correct, but cards ordered between the dates 2020-06-16 and 2020-07-13 do not have a complete date of birth.

For your information, this error is due to a technical error when the Swedish Migration Agency ordered the LMA-cards. It does not mean that the card has been tampered with, or that the asylum seeker has stated the wrong date of birth. The Migration Agency has chosen not to revoke all LMA-cards with the incomplete date of birth, but those asylum seekers who wish can contact their reception unit to order a new card.
