Decla­ra­tion of citi­zenship

Is it unclear whether you are a Swedish citizen? If so, you may apply for a written declaration of citizenship that shows whether you are a Swedish citizen.

If you don’t know if you have received or lost Swedish citizenship, you can apply for a declaration of citizenship. It may be unclear, for example, if:

  • you became a Swedish citizen at birth
  • you lost your Swedish citizenship because you were born abroad and have never lived in Sweden
  • you lost your Swedish citizenship when you obtained a different citizenship.

Apply for a citi­zenship decla­ra­tion

You submit the form Ansökan om medborgarskapsförklaring (Application for citizenship declaration) 322011. If you live outside of Sweden, you must submit your application to the nearest Swedish embassy or consulate-general.
