Planning your moving to Sweden
Visa and residence permit
If you plan to stay in Sweden longer than three months and are not a citizen of a Nordic/EU/EEA country, you will need to contact the Swedish Migration Agency (Migrationsverket).
There is a shortage of rental flats in Stockholm and the waiting lists for a room or a flat are generally long. If you need an accommodation, we advise you to contact an accommodation agency to have your name placed on a waiting list.
