Entry, Exit and Visa Requirements

Sweden is a party to the Schengen Agreement. Visit the  Embassy of Sweden  website for the most current visa information.

Traveling Through Europe: If you are planning to visit or travel through European countries, you should be familiar with the requirements of the Schengen Agreement.

  • Your passport should be valid for  at least three months beyond the period of stay. If you plan on transiting a Schengen country, review our  U.S. Travelers in Europe page.
  • You will need  sufficient proof of funds  and  a return plane ticket .
  • For additional information about visas for the Schengen area, see the  Schengen Visa page.

HIV/AIDS Restrictions:   The U.S. Department of State is unaware of any HIV/AIDS entry restrictions for visitors to or foreign residents of Sweden.

Find information on  dual nationality ,  prevention of international child abduction  and  customs regulations  on our websites.

Safety and Security

Terrorism : Terrorist groups and those inspired by such organizations are intent on attacking U.S. citizens abroad. Terrorists are increasingly using less sophisticated methods of attack – including knives, firearms, and vehicles – to more effectively target crowds. Frequently, their aim is unprotected or vulnerable targets, such as:

  • High-profile public events (sporting contests, political rallies, demonstrations, holiday events, celebratory gatherings, etc.)
  • Hotels, clubs, and restaurants frequented by tourists
  • Places of worship
  • Shopping malls and markets
  • Public transportation systems (including subways, buses, trains, and scheduled commercial flights)

Sweden has been subject to terrorist incidents in the past and the potential for a future terrorist incident remains.  As in other countries in the Schengen area, Sweden’s open borders with its European neighbors could permit terrorist groups to enter and exit the country with anonymity. European governments are taking action to guard against terrorist attacks, but all European countries remain potentially vulnerable to attacks from transnational terrorist organizations.

For more information, see our Terrorism page .

Crime:  Sweden has a low crime rate, and most crimes involve the theft of personal property from vehicles, residences, and public areas. While armed violence against the public continues to be a rare occurrence, violent crimes, such as homicides and sexual assaults, can occur. The majority of violent crimes occur in Sweden’s larger cities, such as Stockholm, Gothenburg, and Malmo. Organized crime groups have also committed armed acts against each other.

Pickpocketing and petty theft are common in and around major tourist attractions, especially Stockholm’s Old Town (“Gamla Stan”) as well as at restaurants, coffee shops, amusement parks, museums, bars, airports, and on public transportation.

Hotel breakfast rooms and lobbies attract well-dressed, professional thieves who blend in with guests and target purses and briefcases left unguarded by tourists and business travelers.

Do not buy counterfeit or pirated goods, even if they are widely available. Not only are counterfeit goods illegal to bring back into the United States, but if you purchase them, you may also be breaking local law.

Demonstrations  occur frequently. They may take place in response to political or economic issues, on politically significant holidays, and during international events.

  • Even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and possibly become violent.
  • Avoid areas around protests and demonstrations.
  • Check local media for updates and traffic advisories.

International Financial Scams : See the  Department of State  and the  FBI  pages for information.

Internet romance and financial scams are prevalent in Sweden. Scams are often initiated through Internet postings/profiles or by unsolicited emails and letters. Scammers almost always pose as U.S. citizens who have no one else to turn to for help. Common scams include:

  • romance/online dating
  • money transfers
  • bank overpayments
  • online relationships that evolve into requests for emergency financial assistance

Victims of Crime : U.S. citizen victims of crime, including sexual assault, should first contact local police authorities by dialing 112. Crime victims may contact the U.S. Embassy at +46 (8) 785-5300 after they have contacted local authorities.  Remember that local authorities are responsible for investigating and prosecuting all crimes.

See our webpage on  help for U.S. victims of crime overseas .

  • Help you find appropriate medical care
  • Assist you in reporting a crime to the police
  • Contact relatives or friends with your written consent
  • Provide general information regarding the victim’s role during the local investigation and following its conclusion
  • Provide a list of local attorneys
  • Provide our information on  victim’s compensation programs in the U.S.
  • Provide information on  Sweden’s Crime Victim Compensation and Support Authority
  • Provide an emergency loan for repatriation to the United States and/or limited medical support in cases of destitution
  • Help you find accommodation and arrange flights home
  • Replace a stolen or lost passport

Domestic Violence : U.S. citizen victims of domestic violence are encouraged to contact the Embassy for assistance.

Tourism : The tourism industry is generally regulated and rules are regularly enforced. Hazardous areas/activities are identified with appropriate signage and professional staff is typically on hand in support of organized activities. In the event of an injury, appropriate medical treatment is widely available throughout the country. Outside of a major metropolitan center, it may take more time for first responders and medical professionals to stabilize a patient and provide life-saving assistance. U.S. citizens are encouraged to purchase medical evacuation insurance. See our webpage for more information on  insurance providers for overseas coverage .

Local Laws & Special Circumstances

Criminal Penalties: You are subject to local laws. If you violate local laws, even unknowingly, you may be expelled, arrested, or imprisoned. Individuals establishing a business or practicing a profession that requires additional permits or licensing should seek information from the competent local authorities, prior to practicing or operating a business.

Furthermore, some laws are also prosecutable in the United States, regardless of local law. For examples, see our website on  crimes against minors abroad and the  Department of Justice  website.

Arrest Notification: If you are arrested or detained, ask police or prison officials to notify the U.S. Embassy in Stockholm immediately. See our  webpage  for further information.

There is no provision for bail in Sweden. U.S. citizens who are arrested may be held in custody until an investigation or trial is concluded, either of which can range in duration from a few days to a year or more.

Drug and Alcohol Enforcement: Swedish law enforcement authorities have no tolerance for illegal drugs, including marijuana. Marijuana of all forms, including CBD products, are illegal to bring into or possess in Sweden. Penalties for possessing, using, or trafficking illegal drugs in Sweden are strict, and convicted offenders can face imprisonment, fines, deportation, and/or a ban from re-entering Sweden.

Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, including prescription drugs, is considered a very serious offense. The maximum legal blood-alcohol level is .02% - much lower than in the United States. Swedish police often conduct alcohol tests on roads and highways. Drunk driving rules are strictly enforced and fines can be severe, including possible jail sentences.

Child Protection Laws: The treatment of children is taken very seriously in Sweden. All forms of corporal punishment of children are against the law, and any form of violence, humiliating treatment, or neglect may result in the child being taken away from parents by the Swedish authorities and placed into long-term care by Sweden’s social services and/or criminal charges being brought against the offending parent. Homeschooling is not allowed in Sweden, except under extraordinary circumstances.

Compulsory Military Service: In March 2017, Sweden reintroduced military conscription for men and women. Dual U.S.-Swedish citizens are also subject to conscription, although persons who have previously done military service may be excluded from the requirement and should contact the Swedish Ministry of Defense for more information.

Counterfeit and Pirated Goods: Although counterfeit and pirated goods are prevalent in many countries, they may still be illegal according to local laws. You may also pay fines or have to give them up if you bring them back to the United States. See the U.S. Department of Justice website for more information.

Faith-Based Travelers: See the following webpages for details:

  • Faith-Based Travel Information
  • International Religious Freedom Report  – see country reports
  • Human Rights Report  – see country reports
  • Hajj Fact Sheet for Travelers
  • Best Practices for Volunteering Abroad

LGBTQI+ Travelers: There are no legal restrictions on same-sex sexual relations or the organization of LGBTQI+ events in Sweden.

See our  LGBTQI+ Travel Information  page and section 6 of our  Human Rights report  for further details.

Travelers with Disabilities: The law in Sweden prohibits discrimination against persons with physical, sensory, intellectual or mental disabilities, and the law is enforced. Social acceptance of persons with disabilities in public is as prevalent as in the United States. Accessibility to public facilities and transportation in Sweden is extensive. The Swedish Government actively funds programs promoting disability access to streets, public buildings, stores, restaurants, and public transportation. For more information on accessibility in Sweden, visit the  Tourist Bureau ’s website.

Students: See our  Students Abroad  page and  FBI travel tips .

Women Travelers: See our travel tips for  women travelers .

Medical care in Sweden is comparable to that found in the United States. Non-residents are expected to pay their own medical costs in full.

For emergency services in Sweden, dial 112. Assistance in English is available.

Ambulance services are widely available.

For non-emergencies, you can visit a local medical center or clinic, called an “Akutmottagning” or “Vardcentral.” Be prepared to present your passport.

We do not pay medical bills. Be aware that U.S. Medicare/Medicaid does not apply overseas. Most hospitals and doctors overseas do not accept U.S. health insurance.

Medical Insurance: Make sure your health insurance plan provides coverage overseas. Most care providers overseas only accept credit card payments. See our  webpage  for more information on insurance providers for overseas coverage. Visit  the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention  for more information on the type of insurance you should consider before you travel overseas.

We strongly recommend supplemental insurance to cover medical evacuation.

Always carry your prescription medication in original packaging, along with your doctor’s prescription. Check with Sweden’s  Medical Products Agency  to ensure the medication is legal in Sweden. Please note that local physicians may not prescribe the quantities or dosages of medication that a U.S. doctor would. Stringent Swedish customs regulations prohibit the shipment of drugs to Sweden. Most pharmacies (“Apotek”) are open during normal shopping hours, but major cities will have a 24-hour pharmacy.

Vaccinations:  Be up-to-date on all  vaccinations  recommended for international travel by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Further health information:

  • World Health Organization
  • U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention  (CDC)

Air Quality: Visit  AirNow Department of State  for information on air quality at U.S. Embassies and Consulates.

The U.S. Embassy maintains a list of local hospitals and health facilities here .  We do not endorse or recommend any specific medical provider or clinic.

Travel and Transportation

Road Conditions and Safety: Swedish roads are comparable to those in the United States, though secondary roads may be less heavily traveled. Road signs use standard international symbols and Swedish text. Many urban streets have traffic lanes reserved for public transportation only.

All vehicles on the road must have their headlights turned on, no matter the time of day. You must use snow tires between December 1 and March 31, and you should be experienced driving on ice and snow if you are going to drive in the winter.

You must use seat belts, and children under 135cm (4ft 5 inches) in height must be seated in approved child or booster seats.

Gas stations in rural areas can be far apart. Some stations are unattended and require a credit card with a chip to purchase fuel.

Slower vehicles should move onto the shoulder to allow faster moving vehicles to pass.

Traffic Laws: You can use a valid U.S. driver’s license while visiting Sweden, or as a resident in Sweden registered for less than one year, but you must be at least 18 years old to drive.

The maximum speed limit is 120 kilometers per hour (approximately 75 miles per hour).

Public Transportation: Public transportation in Sweden is the recommended way to travel within larger cities. Taxis are more expensive than in major U.S. cities. Most local residents use public transport in Stockholm, as parking can be expensive. The bus, train, and subway systems are considered safe. Cyclists are common on many roads, especially in urban areas.

See our  Road Safety page  or Driving in Sweden website for more information. Visit the website of Sweden’s  national tourist office  and  national transport administration  responsible for road safety.

Aviation Safety Oversight: The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has assessed the government of Sweden’s Civil Aviation Authority as being in compliance with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) aviation safety standards for oversight of Sweden’s air carrier operations. Further information may be found on the  FAA’s safety assessment page .

Maritime Travel: Mariners planning travel to Sweden should also check for  U.S. maritime advisories and alerts . Information may also be posted to the  U.S. Coast Guard homeport website  and the  NGA maritime safety information website .

A Step-by-Step Guide on How to Apply for a Sweden Evisa

apply Sweden evisa

Travelling has become easier with the advent of technology, and one such advancement is the introduction of electronic visas, commonly known as Evisas. In this guide, we’ll focus on applying for a Sweden Evisa. This digital visa allows international travellers to visit Sweden without needing a traditional paper visa. The process is entirely online, making it easier, quicker, and more efficient for applicants and immigration authorities. This guide will walk you through the process, breaking it into easy-to-follow steps.

Table of Contents

The Sweden Evisa is a digital authorization granted by the Swedish government, allowing foreign nationals to travel to and within Sweden. Unlike traditional visas, Evisas are electronic, meaning the entire application process can be completed online. As such, visiting an embassy or consulate in person is unnecessary. The Sweden Evisa is linked directly to your passport, and it’s checked digitally by the immigration officers upon your arrival in Sweden.

It’s important to note that not all countries are eligible for a Sweden Evisa. The Swedish government determines the list of eligible countries, which can change occasionally. It’s always a good idea to check the current list of eligible countries before starting your application.

Check if your country supports Sweden Evisa or Visa or Visa on Arrival

Understanding the sweden evisa requirements.

Before starting your application, you should understand the Sweden Evisa requirements. The Swedish government sets these requirements, and all applicants must meet them. Please complete these requirements to ensure your application is accepted.

The first requirement is to be a citizen of an eligible country. The second requirement is that you must have a valid passport. Your passport must be valid for at least six months from arrival in Sweden. You’ll also need a valid email address to receive your Sweden Evisa and any correspondence regarding your application.

Step 1: Gathering the necessary documents for your Sweden Evisa application

Once you understand the requirements, the next step in applying for a Sweden Evisa is to gather the necessary documents. It includes your valid passport, a recent passport-sized photo, and a valid credit or debit card for the application fee. You may also need to provide additional documents depending on your purpose of visit and your country of residence.

Your passport-sized photo should be recent, clear, and of high quality. The picture should show your whole face without any hats or glasses. It should also have a white or off-white background.

Step 2: Filling out the Sweden Evisa application form

Visit the official Sweden Evisa website

After gathering the necessary documents, the next step is to fill out the Sweden Evisa application form. This online form asks for your personal information, passport details, and travel plans.

When filling out the form, provide accurate and complete information. Any discrepancies or errors could delay your application or even a visa denial.

Step 3: Paying the Sweden Evisa application fee

Once you’ve completed the application form, the next step is to pay the Sweden Evisa application fee. The fee can be paid online using a credit or debit card. It’s important to note that the payment is non-refundable, even if your application is denied.

The fee varies depending on the type of visa you’re applying for. For example, a tourist visa may cost differently than a business visa. Be sure to check the current prices before submitting your payment.

Step 4: Submitting your Sweden Evisa application

After paying the application fee, the final step is to submit your Sweden Evisa application. This can be done online, and once submitted, you’ll receive a confirmation email. This email will contain your application number, which you’ll need to track the status of your application.

Understanding the Sweden Evisa process time

The Sweden Evisa process time can vary depending on several factors. These include the type of visa you’re applying for, the volume of applications being processed at the time, and whether or not you’ve provided all the necessary documents.

On average, the processing time for a Sweden Evisa is around 3-5 business days. However, applying at least two weeks before your planned departure is recommended to allow for any potential delays.

Step 5: Tracking the status of your Sweden Evisa application

After submitting your application, you can track the status of your Sweden Evisa application online using your application number. The status will show whether your application is still being processed, approved, or denied.

You’ll receive your Sweden Evisa via email if your application is approved. If your application is denied, you’ll receive an email explaining the reasons for the denial.

Understanding the Sweden Evisa duration

The Sweden Evisa duration is the length of time for which the visa is valid. It can vary depending on the type of visa and the purpose of your visit.

For a tourist visa, the duration is typically up to 90 days within 180 days. For a business visa, the time may be longer. Be sure to check the duration of your visa when you receive it to ensure you comply with the terms of your visa.

Step 6: Collecting your Sweden Evisa

Once your application is approved, you’ll receive your Sweden Evisa via email. You should print out a copy of your evisa to carry when travelling. Although the visa is electronic and linked to your passport, having a physical copy can be helpful in case of any issues or discrepancies.

Understanding the Sweden Evisa cost

get Sweden evisa

The Sweden Evisa cost includes the application fee and any additional service fees. The price can vary depending on the type of visa and your country of residence.

The application fee is non-refundable, even if your application is denied. Any additional service fees, such as those for expedited processing, are also non-refundable.

Applying for a Sweden Evisa may seem daunting, but with this step-by-step guide, it doesn’t have to be. Remember to check the requirements, gather your documents, fill out the application form accurately, pay the application fee, and submit your application on time.

Here are a few additional tips for a successful application:

  • Always check the current list of eligible countries before starting your application.
  • Ensure your passport is valid for at least six months from your planned arrival date in Sweden.
  • Provide a valid email address to receive your evisa and any correspondence regarding your application.
  • Fill out the application form accurately and completely to avoid delays or denials.
  • Pay the application fee using a valid credit or debit card.
  • Apply at least two weeks before your planned departure to allow for any potential delays in the processing time.
  • Track the status of your application online using your application number.
  • Check the duration of your visa when you receive it to ensure you comply with the terms of your visa.

sweden tourist visa on arrival

  • Passports, travel and living abroad
  • Travel abroad
  • Foreign travel advice

Entry requirements

This advice reflects the UK government’s understanding of current rules for people travelling on a full ‘British citizen’ passport from the UK, for the most common types of travel.

The authorities in Sweden set and enforce entry rules. If you’re not sure how these requirements apply to you, contact the Swedish Embassy in the UK .

COVID-19 rules

There are no COVID-19 testing or vaccination requirements for travellers entering Sweden.

Accompanied under-18s

Carry a letter of consent from the parent or guardian of children under 18 who are travelling with you.

Passport validity requirements

To travel to Sweden, you must follow the Schengen area passport requirements .

To enter Sweden (and all Schengen countries) your passport must:

  • have a ‘date of issue’ less than 10 years before the date you arrive. Passports issued after 1 October 2018 are now valid for only 10 years, but for passports issued before 1 October 2018, extra months may have been added if you renewed a passport early
  • have an ‘expiry date’ at least 3 months after the day you plan to leave

Check with your travel provider that your passport and other travel documents meet requirements. Renew your passport if you need to .

You will be denied entry if you do not have a valid travel document or try to use a passport that has been reported lost or stolen.

Checks at border control

Make sure you get your passport stamped.

If you’re a visitor, your passport must be stamped when you enter or leave the Schengen area (which includes Sweden). Border guards will use passport stamps to check you haven’t overstayed the 90-day visa-free limit for stays in the Schengen area. If your passport was not stamped, border guards will presume you have overstayed the visa-free limit.

If your passport was not stamped, show evidence of when and where you entered or left the Schengen area (for example, boarding passes or tickets) and ask the border guards to add the date and location in your passport.

If you live in Sweden, read our Living in Sweden guide for passport stamping information.

At Swedish border control, you may also need to:

  • show proof of your accommodation
  • show proof of your travel insurance
  • show a return or onward ticket
  • prove that you have enough money for your stay

Border controls on arrival from Denmark and Germany

Border controls are in place in Sweden for people travelling from Denmark via the Öresund crossing and arriving on ferries from Denmark and Germany.

Visa requirements

You can travel without a visa to the Schengen area (which includes Sweden) for up to 90 days in any 180-day period. This applies if you travel:

  • as a tourist
  • to visit family or friends

to attend business meetings, cultural or sports event

  • for short-term studies or training

If you’re travelling to Sweden and other Schengen countries without a visa, make sure your whole visit is within the 90-day limit. Visits to Schengen countries in the 180 days before you travel count towards your 90 days.

To stay longer (to work or study, for business travel or for other reasons), you must meet the Swedish government’s entry requirements. Check which type of visa or work permit you need with the Swedish Embassy in the UK .

If you stay in Sweden with a residence permit or long-stay visa, this does not count towards your 90-day visa-free limit.

Vaccination requirements (other than COVID-19)

At least 8 weeks before your trip, check the vaccinations and vaccination certificates you may need in TravelHealthPro’s Sweden guide .

Customs rules

There are strict rules about goods that can be brought into and taken out of Sweden . You must declare anything that may be prohibited or subject to tax or duty.

Taking food and drink into the EU

You cannot take meat, milk or products containing them into EU countries. There are some exceptions for medical reasons, for example certain amounts of powdered infant milk, infant food, or pet food. Check the rules about taking food and drink into the EU on the European Commission website.

Taking money into Sweden

Many shops, cafes and restaurants do not accept cash, so make sure you have a debit or credit card with you.

Unfortunately there is nothing we can do. 

The entire online application service for the Visa on Arrival for Bali is handled 100% by the immigration department. If you run into problems, this is what they said on their website:

"Kindly inform the e-VOA Support Desk (livechat at www.imigrasi.go.id or sending email to [email protected] or [email protected]) should you encounter any suspended or unsuccessful transactions during the request procedure."

Sometimes confirmation emails land in your spam folder, that's the first thing you should check.

Their website seems to be changing rather frequently, and sometimes some features seem to not work on all browsers equally well. What we noticed is, that if you tried to extend a visa and the process failed, it seems you have to then wait one more day to see the extension option again. 

Worse case, if the application fails, you can still get the Visa upon arrival in the arrival hall of the airport (Visa on Arrival).

No , you cannot enter multiple times into Indonesia with this Visa.

The visa on arrival is only a single entry visa. if you leave indonesia and want to come back, you need to apply for a new visit visa., you cannot get another visa after you have extended the visa on arrival once (max. 60 days in total), while you are in indonesia. you would have to leave the country and come pack..

If you want to stay longer than 60 days, you have to get a B211A OFFSHORE Visit Visa (60days) before your arrival first, which is valid for 60 days and which can be extended twice, each extension is valid for another 60 days (total max. 180 days, before you have to leave the country).
