Your application fee will not be refunded if your application is refused.

Paying online

When you apply online, you pay the fee with a credit card in connection with the application. The same applies if you are applying to extend your permit.

Paying at an embassy or consulate-general

If you are applying at an embassy or consulate-general, you pay the fee when you hand in your application. For more information about the fee, contact the embassy or consulate-general where you are applying, as they do not have the same fees and terms of employment as the Migration Agency.

Paying to bankgiro

If you are not applying online, you pay the fee to bankgiro number 5223-7005. The IBAN for the account is SE6912000000012810106908 and the BIC/SWIFT code is DABASESX (Danske Bank). .

In the box for messages to the recipient, you write the name and surname of the person the application fee is for, as well as their personal identity number and/or case number. If you are paying the fees of several people at the same time, write the personal identity number and/or case number for each of them. Also write on the application form when and how you paid the fee.

Exceptions

Most applicants for a residence permit for studies will pay an application fee to the Swedish Migration Agency when submitting their application. Accompanying family members must also pay an application fee. The fee for adults is 1,000 SEK, and 500 SEK for children.

Not everyone applying for a residence permit has to pay an application fee. The following persons can apply without paying a fee:

 

In order for an exception to the application fee requirement to be applicable, the scholarship must consist of money for living expenses, and not only cover tuition fees. The scholarship must be paid out during the period for which you are applying for a residence permit. Note that it is the scholarship that causes an exception to the requirement. For example, if you are employed as a doctoral researcher with a salary funded by EU funds, you are not exempt from the requirement to pay an application fee because you receive a salary and not a scholarship.
