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.
Due to the coronavirus and the temporary entry ban to Sweden, the decision that the majority of visa applications will be rejected is still valid. This applies if you wish to visit Sweden and are a citizen of a country outside the EU.
