Travel grant for the journey to Sweden for close relatives of a refugee

If you have been granted a residence permit as a refugee you may apply for a travel grant to cover the expenses of your family members trip to Sweden.

The grant can be approved for family members whom you have lived with outside of Sweden, and who are

  • your wife, husband, registered partner or cohabiting partner
  • your children (if they are unmarried and under the age of 20)
  • your parents and siblings (if you are under the age of 18).

In order to be eligible for the travel grant you must have been granted a residence permit as a refugee in accordance with the Geneva Convention of 1951 and have a permit with code AF or A3. Stateless Palestinians with refugee status declarations or travel documents issued by the Swedish Migration Agency can also apply for the travel grant.

Your family members must have been granted Swedish residence permits and hold valid passports before you can apply for the grant.

You are not eligible for the grant if you are a Swedish citizen or if you or your family members can pay for the trip yourselves.

The travel grant normally consists of one airplane ticket per person, from the country where your family members are situated, to Sweden.
