On 22 June, the Swedish parliament approved amendments to the Aliens Act. These came into force on 20 July. For researchers and doctoral candidates from countries outside EU/EEA the change in the law primarily means that sufficient means of financial support through work or an own company is required for a permanent residence permit to be granted. The requirement applies to all applicants who did not receive their decision before 20 July.
In this webinar Robert Andersson, chief negotiator at SULF, will talk about the changes to the Aliens Act and give you the latest updates on the rules and inform about the activities we have had so far in order to get the rules changed. We will also answer your questions.
- How do the new rules for permanent residence permits affect me as a doctoral candidate or researcher?
- How do the new rules affect my family members?
- Can I still stay in Sweden if I am not granted a permanent residence permit?
- Could status as long-term resident be an alternative?
- How should I navigate regarding the new regulations?
When: Tuesday 12 October
Registration: Register here no later than 11 October.
The webinar will be recorded so you will be able to watch it afterwards on our website.
