Embassies responsible for migration matters
In around 50 countries, Sweden has an embassy or a consulate-general that handles migration matters. You can go there if you live in the country. If you live in another country, you should instead contact a Swedish embassy or consulate-general in another location.
If you are a citizen of or live in a country where there is a Swedish embassy or consulate-general that handles migration matters, you need to contact that embassy or consulate-general when you receive a request from the Swedish Migration Agency to
- make an appointment for investigation
- provide fingerprints and be photographed
- show your passport for verification
- collect a residence permit card.
If you live in a country where there is no Swedish embassy or consulate-general, you should instead contact a Swedish embassy or consulate-general in another country. Here you can found out which embassy or consulate general is responsible for your application.
