The situation in Ukraine

The security situation in Ukraine has deteriorated severely following Russia’s invasion, and many people are now leaving Ukraine and entering neighbouring countries in Europe. On this page we have gathered information about the situation in Ukraine and what applies to people who are coming to Sweden in connection with the conflict.

Accommodation for people fleeing

Many people are now fleeing Ukraine to Sweden and who now need somewhere to live. The Swedish Migration Agency receives many questions from private individuals who want to offer a room or accommodation. Civil society's involvement is important, but the Swedish Migration Agency does not have the possibility to mediate accommodation from private individuals to those who need accommodation.

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.
