Book an appointment to submit your application to extend your residence permit based on need for protection

If you are going to extend a temporary residence permit based on need for protection, you can now book an appointment before your visit to the Swedish Migration Agency.

When your temporary residence permit expires, you will have the opportunity to apply for an extension. The application must be submitted in person at the Migration Agency. You can submit your application three months before your permit expires at the earliest, but no later than the day when the permit expires.

In order to be able to plan your time and visit the Migration Agency when it is convenient for you, you can book an appointment for submitting your application. You can do this here on the Migration Agency’s website. The visit is expected to take 1.5-2 hours. You may have to wait a while even when your turn comes, as it may take time to find an available translator. During your visit, you will submit your written application, be fingerprinted and photographed, and have an interview with a Case Officer.

If you are a whole family submitting your application at the same time, you must reserve a separate time for each person. In the reservation system, you can choose the number of people who will be
visiting the Migration Agency.

The locations where you can submit your application are:

Boden
Flen Gävle
Gothenburg
Malmö
Norrköping
Märsta (Stockholm)
Sundsvall
Västerås
Örebro.
