SWEDEN: TOURIST & SHORT STAY


 If you want to visit Sweden and you are a citizen of a country outside the EU, you may need to apply for an entry visa. An entry visa is a permit required by persons wishing to enter Sweden for a temporary visit, for example:

  • on business or to take part in a conference
  • to visit relatives and friends
  • as a tourist

Visas are granted for a maximum of 90 days at a time. Only in exceptional cases are applicants granted a visa for a visit of more than 90 days’ duration, but never for longer than a year. An entry visa is normally valid in all the Schengen countries. To be granted a visa, you must show that you have enough money for your keep and for your home trip. You also need health insurance that covers the costs if you become ill during your visit to Sweden.
Requirements for obtaining a visa

If you wish to visit Sweden and the other Schengen countries, you must have:

  • a passport that is valid for a minimum of three months after your visa has expired and which has been issued in the last ten-year period
  • money for your keep and for the journey home. Sweden requires that you have SEK 450 for each day spent in Sweden. In certain circumstances, this amount may be lower, for example in the case of a young child, if the cost of food and accommodation is paid in advance or if you are going to stay with relatives or friends. You must be able to demonstrate that you have sufficient funds for your keep with the help, for example, of bank statements or a document in which the person inviting you to Sweden promises to meet all expenses during the visit
  • individual medical travel insurance which covers the costs which could arise as a result of emergency medical assistance, emergency hospitalisation or medical repatriation. The insurance should cover costs of at least EUR 30,000 and be valid in all the Schengen countries.

Visas for business trips and to attend conferences:
If you are visiting Sweden on a business or conference trip and are a citizen of a non-EU country, you may need a visa. A visa is a permit to travel to and stay in a country for a limited period. To be granted a visa, you need an invitation from the company or person who is arranging the conference. You must show that you have enough money for your keep and for your home trip. You also need health insurance that covers the costs if you become ill during your visit to Sweden.
