HOW TO MOVE TO SWEDEN

The place you want to be.

Want to relocate to Sweden but you don't know where to start?

 

Take a look at our step-by-step guide below, where all the information is linked to reliable sources. Our mission is to make your move to Sweden as smooth as possible and reliable information as accessible as possible. We hope you'll enjoy it!

1. Get to know Sweden

SWEDEN, the land of  opportunities, clean cities, stunning natural environments, coffee culture (fika) and much, much more.

2. Conekta helps you with both a job and work permit. 

If you are an EU citizen you have the right to work in Sweden without a residence permit, this is called right of residence. Therefore, when you get a job, you don't need to contact the Swedish Migration Agency and can directly register with the Swedish Tax Agency, the Swedish Social Insurance Agency and get a resident ID card (check out these links down below in the yellow boxes).

However, if you are a non-EU/EEA Citizen you need a work permit to work in Sweden. Usually this permit application approval can take up to seven months via the Swedish Migration Agency. Fortunately, Conekta offer you this accelerated application process service for free and thereto in only ten days. Contact us if you have further questions.  

3.  Conekta helps with accommondation

The housing market in Sweden is quite competitive and therefore we want to help you as much as we can. We hope you'll find our information valuable and that it will make the apartment search process easier. If you are interested in living in one of our accommondations, feel free to contact us.

 

We wish you good luck with your new accommondation in Sweden.

4. Learn basic Swedish

It will make it easier for you to integrate into Swedish society if you have some basic knowledge of Swedish. Once you have a Swedish personal identity number, you can sign up for free Swedish courses arranged by the government programme Swedish for Immigrants (SFI). If you are interested in learning Swedish online here are two useful links to begin with:
