Acti­vi­ties while you are waiting for a deci­sion

As an asylum seeker, you can take part in various activities to start learning Swedish, find out about Swedish society and the labour market or improve your health.

Many voluntary organisations arrange activities for asylum seekers. There are also study associations and folk high schools that offer study circles or courses in Swedish and civic information. The great majority of the activities arranged by these organisations and by study associations and folk high schools are part of society’s Early action for asylum seekers (TIA). There is no charge for taking part in these activities when you present your asylum seeker card (LMA card). The Migration Agency can also pay for your travel costs in some cases.

If you want to take part in a study circle, course or other activity in Early action for asylum seekers you have to contact a study association, folk high school or voluntary organisation where you live.
