The Swedish government has announced that it will introduce a new passport requirement for those applying for residence permits.
Additional Information: Individuals who are applying for asylum, residence cards, permanent residence cards, permanent right of residence or permanent resident status are exempt from the in-person passport requirement. More information regarding the in-person passport requirement is available here.
BAL Analysis: The Swedish government introduced the in-person passport requirement to increase security and mitigate fraudulent activity. Those who are applying for residence permits should expect increased processing times and delays when booking appointments at local embassies or consulates.
