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. The card must be enabled for Internet payment. Contact your bank for more information. 

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. The fee is usually paid in the local currency. The exchange is calculated according to the rate set by the European Central Bank. The amount is rounded off to the nearest whole amount. For more information about the fee, contact the embassy or consulate-general where you are applying.

Excep­tions from visa fees

Not everyone applying for a visa has to pay the application fee. The following people may apply for visas for the Schengen area (maximum of 90 days) without paying an application fee:

  • children under the age of 6
  • school pupils, university and doctoral students, together with the teachers accompanying them, who travel to Sweden for educational purposes
  • researchers travelling to Sweden for academic research
  • representatives of non-profit organisations.

Family members of citi­zens of Iceland, Liech­tenstein, Norway, Swit­zer­land and the EU

Family members of citizens of Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland and the EU do not have to pay an application fee for a visa if they are to move to the family member in Sweden. This also applies to a short journey to prepare for a move together with the family member in Sweden. They must also be able to show proof of their marriage or family ties.

This rule applies to the following family members:

  • husband, wife, cohabiting partner or registered partner (cohabiting partners of Swiss citizens are not included)
  • children under the age of 21
  • children over the age of 21 if they are dependent on their parents for their support

Swedish nationals are not included in the group "EU citizens" in this context.

  • EU/EEA citizens applying for residence permits
  • Swiss citizens and their family members
  • Japanese citizens
  • in Sweden and who are unable to travel home because of the coronavirus pandemic, for example because there are no flights available, and because the only available flight connections pass through a country with an entry ban.

If you have paid the wrong application fee

You can get money back if you have paid the wrong application fee. For example, you may have accidentally paid the fee twice. If you have applied online or on paper, you should contact the Migration Agency and request the money back. If you have submitted an application to an embassy or consulate-general, you should contact them.
