How to apply for Work permits
Work permits can be applied for at the Swedish embassy or consulate in the applicant’s home country.
There are specific conditions that have to be met in order for the applicant to qualify. For instance, it is necessary to show that the particular job could not be performed by a resident citizen (i.e. from the EU). It is therefore necessary to show that the job vacancy was advertised in Sweden and the EU and that no suitable candidate came forward. Furthermore, offered terms of employment must be equivalent to a Swedish collective agreement or customary terms for the occupation or industry and any relevant labour union must be given an opportunity to state their opinion regarding the terms of the offer of employment.
