[CANCELLED] - How to extend your residence permit - what to do and what to avoid

2018-02-0617:00 to 18:00 Torget - University LibraryCampus Solna

UPDATE, 5 February: We are happy to inform you that this information session has been cancelled. This is because it is no longer needed due to the Swedish Migration Agency updating it's practice after requests from Karolinska Institutet and Medicinska Föreningen amongst others. For more information, here's an article on the topic.


Are you a full programme student at KI coming from outside of EU/EEA? Then you probably need to extend your residence permit sometime during this semester and this information session is for you.

Unfortunately, some students have encountered problems with their applications. During the session, we will outline the most common mistakes and pitfalls to help you plan ahead for your application. They include: 

  • If your parents support you, make sure that you do not transfer the money to your account as a lump sum the week you submit your application.
  • If you have several bank accounts, you must enclose statements from all your accounts. 
  • The statement must contain details of the balance, the name of the account holder and the currency. 
  • Bank assets must be on an account that belongs to you and from which only you and your husband or wife, if you have one, can withdraw money. If you share the account with, for example, your parents or a relative, the bank assets will not be regarded as your own.
  • At some banks you need to show up in person to get your bank statements. Please have this in mind if you’re going back to your country for the winter holiday.

We strongly encourage all fee-paying students to attend. If you are unable to attend, the presentation will be filmed and the information made available on our webpage about resident permits.

We will serve coffee, tea and fruit to keep you going after a long day.
