The new rules regarding permanent residency – with Migrationsverket and SULF


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 Migrationsverket will answer your questions about the rules that affect you as a doctoral candidate or a researcher. Robert Andersson, chief negotiator at SULF, also will give you the latest updates and inform about the activities we have had so far in order to get the rules changed. We will also answer questions.

  • How does the new rules for permanent residence permits affect me as a doctoral candidate or researcher?
  • How does 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?
