You can apply for extended protection in February

Anyone in Sweden who has protection under the Temporary Protection Directive will be able to apply for an extended residence permit in February.

You can apply for an extended residence permit for yourself and your family members who are in Sweden. To be able to apply, you need an email address, a mobile phone number and your case number. If you are helping someone else, you need to be able to provide the case number of all the people for whom you are applying. You can find the case number on the residence permit card or in the upper right corner of the decision from the Swedish Migration Agency. You do not need to attach any documents or passport copies.

Apply in time

It is important that you apply for an extended residence permit in time, that is, no later than 4 March 2024. If you do not apply for an extended residence permit in time, you must reapply for protection, accommodation and financial support, and you will not be allowed to work until you have received a new decision.

Once you have applied for an extended permit online, you need to follow up your application with a personal visit, where you will be photographed and provide fingerprints for your new residence permit card.
