Online application for Swedish citizenship

Here you can fill out and pay the application or notification for Swedish citizenship online. When you have completed the application, you must print it and sign it with your signature. Then you send your application and the identification documents by post to the Migration Agency. The application is only available in Swedish.

An application takes 20–60 minutes to complete. This depends on how many questions we need to ask you and how well you have prepared.

Before you start

In order to apply via the website you must

  • have a valid email address
  • be able to pay by credit or debit card or via internet banking while you submit your application. The card must be enabled for Internet payment
  • have a printer so that you can print out the application
  • consent to the Migration Agency starting to process your application before receiving the letter with your signature.

You will need your passport or national identity card when applying as we will ask you questions about these.

This is how it works

The application consists of various questions. You must fill in information regarding the person who is applying for Swedish citizenship. If you are applying for your child, and only your child, you must fill in the child's information. You must answer all questions in order to proceed. You must only use the buttons available in the form to go back and forth between the pages, never the browser's (e.g. Internet Explorer's) arrows.

When you have completed the application, you must print it out and sign it. If you are applying on behalf of a child, both parents have to sign it.

Documents that you have to submit

You must submit the printed application with your signature and the original identification documents.  This also applies to children. We need these in order to process your application.

Because you are enclosing your passport or other original documents, you should send your application by registered mail. The post office will help you to do this.

Scanned copies

It is possible to send scanned copies along with your application, but you must still send the original documents.

Documents may not exceed two megabytes (MB). Only Latin characters may be used in the file name. We support the following file formats: pdf, doc, docx, jpg, png, rtf and txt.

Paying the fee online

In most cases you must pay a fee. You pay the application fee via one of our payment services whilst applying.

Fees for citizenship

You can pay with a credit or debit card. We accept VISA and MasterCard. The card must be enabled for Internet payment. Contact your bank for more information.

Problems paying with a credit or debit card

If you have problems when paying the application fee with a credit or debit card, an error message with technical information will usually appear. Problems like this are not caused by the Migration Agency's systems and for this reason we cannot help you with them. If you are having problems with your card, please contact your bank.

Logging in

You can log in with a user name and password or using an electronic ID.

With a user name and password

First you need to register. When you have registered you will receive an email that contains a user name, a password and a link to the application form. You can save your application and log in and out for 48 hours. If you do not receive an email from the Migration Agency this might be because your email account's spam filter believes the email to be spam. You should therefore check your spam folder.

With electronic ID 

If you choose to log in using an electronic ID you will be able to save your application and go back to it for 30 days.
