After a decision for those who have status as long-term residents in the EU
The decision will be sent to your address in Sweden. When the residence permit card is ready, it will be sent to your home within about one week.
As an employee or self-employed person, or if you have sufficient means to support yourself, you can receive a permit for at most five years. If you are a student, you will receive a permit for the time that your studies last, although for no more than one year at a time.
If you plan to continue living in Sweden after your permit has expired, you should submit an application for extension of your permit. You should apply for an extension before your previous permit runs out.
When you have had a residence permit for five years, you can obtain status as a long-term resident in Sweden. If you meet the requirements for this, you will also receive a permanent residence permit. Your permanent residence permit is valid for as long as you reside in Sweden. Keep in mind that, if you did not live in Sweden for longer periods during the time of the permit, this can affect your ability to obtain a permanent residence permit. You can lose your status as a long-term resident in another EU country if you are absent from that country for six years.
The Migration Agency may withdraw a permit
The residence permit can be withdrawn if, in your application, you provided incorrect information or did not mention something that was significant in regards to your residence permit. The permit can also be withdrawn if the requirements for the permit are no longer met.
If the Swedish Migration Agency refuses your application
If the Swedish Migration Agency refuses your application, you can appeal the decision within three weeks from the date when you were informed of the decision. Information on how to lodge an appeal can be found in your decision.
