Application fees for residence permits to live with someone in Sweden
Residence permit to live with someone in Sweden
Child under the age of 18
Your application fee will not be refunded if your application is refused.
An application for a permanent residence permit must be submitted at the same time as an application for an extension of a residence permit and costs nothing extra.
When you apply online, you pay the fee with a credit card in connection with the application. The same applies if you are applying to extend your permit. The card must be enabled for Internet payment. Contact your bank for more information.
Paying at an embassy or consulate-general
If you are applying at an embassy or consulate-general, you pay the fee when you hand in your application. For more information about the fee, contact the embassy or consulate-general where you are applying, as they do not have the same fees and terms of payment as the Swedish Migration Agency.
Paying to bankgiro
If you are not applying online, you pay the fee to bankgiro number 5223-7005. The IBAN for the account is SE6912000000012810106908 and the BIC/SWIFT code is DABASESX (Danske Bank).
In the box for messages to the recipient, you write the name and surname of the person the application fee is for, as well as their personal identity number and/or case number. If you are paying the fees of several people at the same time, write the personal identity number and/or case number for each of them. Also write on the application form when and how you paid the fee.
You can only pay to bankgiro if you apply from Sweden. If you apply at an embassy or consulate-general, you pay the fee when you hand in your application.
Not everyone who applies has to pay a fee. The exceptions are:
- family members of EU/EEA citizens. Swedish nationals are not included in the group "EU citizens" in this context
- EU/EEA citizens applying for residence permits
- Swiss citizens and their family members
- Japanese citizens.
- husbands, wives, cohabiting partners, registered partners and unmarried children under the age of 18 who are applying for a residence permit to live with a family member who has been granted a Swedish residence permit as a refugee, persons in need of subsidiary protection or otherwise in need of protection, due to exceptionally distressing circumstances or due to particularly distressing circumstances.
Parents and siblings of children who have been granted a residence permit as refugees, who are in need of protection or have been granted a residence permit due to particularly distressing circumstances are not included in this exception and need to pay the fee.
If you have paid the wrong application fee
You can get money back if you have paid the wrong application fee. For example, you may have accidentally paid the fee twice. If you have applied online or on paper, you must contact the Migration Agency to request the money back. If you have submitted an application to an embassy or consulate-general, you should contact them instead.
When you request a refund you should write
- your first name and surname
- your personal ID number or date of birth
- your address
- why you should get a refund
- which case number/check number the fee applies to
- which bank and account number the money should be transferred to.
You must also submit a bank statement or receipt that clearly shows that you have paid a fee to the Swedish Migration Agency. Send this in a letter to the Swedish Migration Agency, 601 70 Norrköping.
