VISA APPLICATION PROCEDURES


Everybody is welcome to visit Sweden, but there are some conditions of entry that visitors must observe. Nationals of some countries need to apply for a visa before entering Sweden. For other nationals, no visa is required but the stay may not exceed three (3) months. You will need to bring:

 
punkt The application form and questionnaire, completed and signed by the applicant.

punkt Two recent passport style photographs of the applicant.

punkt Your current valid passport.

punkt the non-refundable Visa application fee of 250 Swedish Kronor, to be paid in NIS.

Please allow 10 working days for the Visa application to be processed.

Residence and work permits for students and au-pairs

Students

To be granted a residence permit as a student, you must meet the following requirements:

 
punkt Show that you have been accepted in a Swedish educational programme and intend to study in Sweden.

punkt Guarantee that you can support yourself and will not be a burden on the Swedish social welfare system.

punkt Have comprehensive health insurance that is valid in Sweden.

Students are granted residence permits for the period of their studies. If the programme is more than one year long, the Immigration Board will grant a residence permit one year at a time. The application process is different depending on if you are an EU/EEA citizen or not. For further information about these procedures see Residence permits for EU/EEA
citizens or Residence permits for non-EU/EEA citizens.

Au-pairs

Au-pairs require work permits before entering Sweden (except EU/EEA citizens) and should follow the same regulations as for employed persons.

They also require a residence permit. For further information about these procedures see Work permits, Residence permits for EU/EEA citizens or Residence permits for non-EU/EEA citizens.

WORK PERMITS

Work permits are generally only granted to cover an acute shortage of specifically qualified personnel needed in the Swedish labour market. You must be able to substantiate your qualifications for the job you have been offered. A work permit does not entitle the holder to immigrate to Sweden or acquire Swedish citizenship.

Work permits are issued for a specific job which means that you may not change occupation or workplace without renewed assessment of labour market needs. Work permits are also time-limited and may not extend beyond the period stated in your application or beyond the expiration date of your passport.

If your work permit is valid for more than six months, your spouse may obtain a work permit for the same period without any assessment of the labour market.

Do I need a work permit?
If you are a citizen of a country which is not a member of the European Union (EU) and wish to work in Sweden, you must have a work permit sticker attached to your passport before you enter Sweden. If your stay is to exceed three months, you will also need a residence permit.

If you are a citizen of an EU-country, you only need to apply for a residence permit directly in Sweden within three months upon arrival.

How long does it take to get a work permit?
It usually takes between 1-3 months to process an application for a work permit.

How do I apply?
To apply for a work and residence permit, please submit the following to the Embassy of Sweden in Tel Aviv:

 
punkt one completed application form SIV 1040.U

punkt one passport size photo on colour or black/white

punkt a valid passport

punkt one of the following forms, either "Ans׳¦kan om arbetstillst׳•nd

punkt arbetsgivareintyg AMS PF 1704" or "Ans׳¦kan om arbetstillst׳•nd Kulturarbetare AMS PF 1707", mailed to you by your prospective Swedish employer.

How is my application processed?
The Embassy will send your application to the Swedish Immigration Board in Sweden. You will be contacted when a reply has been received.

Once your application has been sent to the Swedish Immigration Board you are not allowed to enter Sweden until your permit (if granted) has been attached to your passport. If you enter Sweden before a reply has been received by the Embassy of Sweden you may jeopardize your application.

Please make sure that your passport will not expire during your stay in Sweden. Your permit may not extend beyond the expiration date of your passport.
