When you have lived in Sweden for at least 5 consecutive years and meet all the other requirements, you can apply for a Swedish citizenship. The Swedish Passport is among the world's best passports. Citizenship strengthens your affinity with Sweden and unites with Swedish nation even more. It gives you more opportunities, right to vote in elections, eligibility to stand for election in parliament as well as the unconditional right to reside in Sweden.
  • Able to prove your identity
  • Be 18 years of age or older
  • Have a permanent residence permit
  • Have a right of residence or residence card (if you are an EU citizen or a close relative of an EU citizen)
  • Have met the requirements for habitual residence (lived in Sweden on a long-term basis for a certain period of time)
  • Have conducted yourself well while in Sweden (clean record)
Sweden does not require a Swedish language test for acquiring citizenship, but it is highly recommended to learn the basics of Swedish, as you might need it for communication with local authorities. It is also an important factor in social integration.
Sweden allows their residents to hold a Dual Citizenship. Dual citizenship means that you are a citizen in more than one country and in most cases, you have more advantages in that way. If you become a Swedish citizen, you may retain your foreign citizenship if the other country allows it. There are several countries, which do not support dual citizenship.
Estimations say the numbers of residents holding dual citizenship are increasing.
  • Visa-free access to multiple countries
    Swedish citizens practically become global citizens and have visa-free or visa on arrival access to 186 countries. The Swedish passport is ranked as 2nd the best in the world by mobility score (tied up with Belgium, Austria, Italy, Ireland), according to the Henley Passport Index.
