Better service helps contributes to a competitive Sweden
On 29 January, the Swedish Migration Agency’s new way of working with work permits will be launched. Central to the new approach is a developed service for employers who recruit highly qualified workers.
In the budget and policy specification for 2023, the Swedish Migration Agency received a mandate to promote highly qualified labour immigration to Sweden. To fulfil this mission, the Swedish Migration Agency is now introducing a new working method for handling work permit cases.
The Swedish Migration Agency will now prioritise service to employers that recruit highly qualified workers and make faster decisions in these cases. Complete applications from highly qualified workers will be processed within 30 days. The requirements for obtaining a work permit remain unchanged.
To make it easier to submit complete applications, the Swedish Migration Agency offers an extra service to employers that employ highly qualified workers.
Employers that contact the Swedish Migration Agency can get help by phone and e-mail. The service may also involve in-person meetings with employers that employ highly qualified workers.
