Employing someone with a residence card

Persons who are citizens of a non-EU country and are close relatives of an EU citizen do not need a permit to work in Sweden but should apply for a residence card if they intend to stay for more than three months.

Residence card

Close relatives of EU citizens may start working immediately and do not need to wait for a decision regarding their residence card.

The person does not need any documents from you as an employer when applying for a residence card.
