Sweden Plans to Facilitate Residence Permit Applications for Int’l Students & Researchers from Visa-


Sweden may soon change its rules for residence permit applications for international students and researchers from visa-free countries in an attempt to avoid the latter’s long-distance travel.
With the new rules approved in the country since the beginning of November last year, international students and researchers applying for residence permits in Sweden must appear at a Swedish embassy or general consulate to show their passports for identity verification, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.

The passport requirement was imposed to have a correct process with applications for work and residence permits in Sweden after the Swedish Migration Agency received criticism about the control of documents by Sweden’s National Audit Office.
