DO I NEED TO APPLY FOR A STUDY VISA?
EU citizens have the right to work, study or live in Sweden without a residence permit if they can show they have “right of residence” which means they are employed, self-employed, a student or have sufficient means to support oneself.
Those who have the right of residence in Sweden do not need to contact the Swedish Migration Agency.
Non EU citizens who want to visit Sweden for more than 90 days need to apply for a “visitor’s permit”. Information can be found on the website of the Swedish Migration Agency regarding the application procedure and the documents requested. Depending on the reason for the visit, different documents are requested.
From 1 November 2022 the Swedish Migration Agency will start new procedures for stricter checks of passports in connection with applications for a residence permit. All applicants for a resident permit, including exchange students, must show their passport at an in-person visit before the Swedish Migration Agency can make a decision. Please find more information at: Stricter passport checks - Swedish Migration Agency (migrationsverket.se) and The Swedish Migration Agency is introducing new rules for better passport check - Swedish Migration Agency (migrationsverket.se). These new procedures may cause extra steps and time to apply for the visa. Students planning to travel to Sweden are advised to check this information in advance.
