The Swedish Institute has carried out two live broadcasts. The purpose was to guide through the process of applying for a residence permit for studies and applying to extend a residence permit for studies in Sweden. The Swedish Migration Agency was present and answered questions during the broadcasts.
The Swedish Migration Agency has extended the possibility of exemptions from the requirement of full-time studies in higher education. The new rules apply to you who needs to extend your residence permit beyond the regular period of study in order to complete your education.
Since 20 July, new requirements apply for anyone who wants to apply for a permanent residence permit. The Swedish Migration Agency is currently receiving many questions on how these new requirements affect children’s possibilities of obtaining permanent residence permits.
