Visiting Sweden

If you want to visit Sweden and you are a citizen in a country outside the EU, you may need to apply for a permit before the visit. Which permit you need to apply for depends on how long your stay in Sweden will be. If your stay in Sweden will be less than 90 days you may need to apply for a visa. If your stay in Sweden will be more than 90 days you need to apply for a visitor’s residence permit.

Are you visi­ting Sweden and are unable to travel home as a conse­quence of the coro­na­virus?

If you are unable to travel home due to borders being closed or flight cancellations, the Swedish Migration Agency recommends that you apply for a visitor’s residence permit instead of extending your entry visa.
