Specific visa regulations
For EU citizens:
Being an EU citizen means that you have the right to work, study, or live in Sweden without having a residence permit. You will need a valid national identity card or passport when entering Sweden from another Schengen EU country. A driving licence does not qualify as a travel document and we recommend that you bring your passport in case you will need to prove your identity. More information about travelling within the EU can be found on the European Commission’s website.
For UK residents:
Holders of certain British Passports/Travel Documents do not need a visa to travel to Sweden. Your passport should be valid for the proposed duration of your stay; you do not need any additional period of validity on your passport beyond this. For information about what happens if the UK leaves the European Union with no deal and any other travel advice or updates please check the FCO website for information.
For US residents:
A valid passport entitles United States citizens to a three-month stay in Sweden.
Tourist visas to Sweden for other countries:
If you are visiting Sweden as a tourist and are a citizen of a non-EU country, you may need a visa. A visa is a permit to travel to and stay in a country for a limited period.
