Simplified notification

Simplified notification means that the Swedish Migration Agency will send the decision via regular mail to the address you have given us. The next day we send another letter to the same address informing you that we have mailed a decision. We do this in order to minimize the risk of an error. In this way the Migration Agency considers that you have been informed of the decision (were notified) two weeks after we sent it to you. After that you have three weeks to appeal the decision.

If the address you gave us cannot be used and you are registered with the Swedish population register, the decision and the control letter will be sent to the address listed as your home address in the population register.

As long as you are registered with the Migration Agency it is important that you inform the reception unit of your current address. Also remember to check your mail on a regular basis. If you appeal the court may also choose to inform you of the decision using the simplified notification method.
