The new residence permit rules in Sweden

How do the new Swedish residence permit rules affect you?

The Swedish parliament has approved amendments to the Aliens Act and these came into force on 20 July 2021. The new provisions will apply to everyone who applied for a permanent residence permit and did not receive a decision before 20 July 2021.

In order to be granted a permanent residence permit, it is now required that applicants are also able to support themselves through employment or their own company.

Another important change is that accompanying family members over the age of 18 must themselves meet the self-support requirement in order to be granted a permanent residence permit, and they must also have had a residence permit for at least three years.

On 28 October, Lotta Rosenfeldt, Relocation Coordinator at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, will give a talk on what the new rules mean in practice. Please note that Lotta does not work for the Swedish Migra­tion Agency.

This event will be held at Stockholms Akademiska Forum, at Narvavägen 30.

Coffee and tea will be served.
