Residence permit in Sweden

All students from non-EU/EEA countries have to apply for a residence permit/visa. You should start the application process as soon as you have been granted admission to the university.

Requirements to be granted a residence permit

To be granted a residence permit you must intend to study and:

  • be admitted to full-time studies
  • have comprehensive health insurance that covers the whole period you are in Sweden if you plan to study for less than one year
  • be able to support yourself for the planned study period
  • have a valid passport.

For further information, please visit the Swedish Migration Agencyexternal link, opens in new window website.

If you need any advice regarding residence permit applications, please contact the Swedish embassy or consulate in your country.

The Swedish Migration Agency decides whether student visas are granted or denied, Halmstad University can not assist you with any questions regarding the residence permit.

If you are admitted to a two year programme and have a residence permit valid for one year or more you are eligible to apply for a Swedish personal id number at the local tax office (Skatteverket)external link, after your arrival in Sweden and registration on the programme.

When you have received the Swedish personal id number, you should change your student id no (19870102-T123) to the Swedish personal id no at Servicecenter. You need to bring the Swedish ID card and your passport.
