On this page you can make an application for a residence permit to move to someone in Sweden or make an application to extend your residence permit.

Instructions for online application
Before progressing to the online application, it’s a good idea to read the instructions on how to apply online. The instructions and documents you need to attach vary, depending on the relationship between you and your close relative.
Apply for the first time
You can not submit an online application to move to a family member if you are already in Sweden. You must return to your country of origin, or where you are permanently resident, and make your application from there.
Extending a permit
If you have a residence permit and wish to continue living in Sweden after your permit has expired, you should apply for an extension of your permit.
