Swedish work permit forms

The easiest and quickest way to apply for a permit in order to work in Sweden is with our online services.

If you are unable to apply online, use one of the forms below. The forms open as pdf documents in a new window. You can complete the forms on your computer and then print them out and sign them. If you do not have access to a printer you will be able to print out the forms at a library or a Citizens Advice Bureau. Don't forget to sign your name before submitting it.

Note that in some web browsers you might be unable to open the forms and complete them. You can then save them onto your computer and open them with a pdf programme such as Acrobat Reader. You can also try to open the forms in another web browser. If you open the forms in the latest version of Acrobat Reader you can also save the completed form.
