New rules for moving to your own accom­mo­da­tion

On 1 July, the rules for asylum seekers who move to their own accommodation (EBO), for example to relatives or friends, were changed. The new rules state that those who choose to move to certain residential areas are not entitled to financial support from the Swedish Migration Agency. There is an e-service to help you check if the address that you want to move to can affect your compensation.

Our mission

The Swedish Migration Agency's mission includes considering applications from people who want to live in Sweden, visit the country, seek protection from persecution or be granted Swedish citizenship.

The Swedish Migration Agency is commissioned by parliament and government, who set the Swedish asylum and migration policy. We are thus commissioned by the Swedish people, through the politicians who make decisions on migration policy.
