The InterNations Expat Guide for working and living in Sweden

Are you an expat working and living in Sweden? Or are you preparing to move soon to Stockholm, Uppsala or any other of the Swedish international hotspots?

Expat life in Sweden has much to offer and provides a great intercultural experience – from discovering the countryside like the university towns of Umeå and Linköping, learning how Swedish people celebrate midsommarafton, up to tasting Sweden’s favorite dishes such as köttbullar.

We certainly provide other expat communities than our members in Sweden with useful information on everyday life. Our guide features a range of topics, from living in Oman to living in South Korea.

Working and living in Sweden – Valuable Information from A to Z

Moving to and living in Sweden requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of Swedish expat life. Living abroad in Sweden raises a lot of questions such as: ʺHow do I find the best relocation services for moving to Sweden?ʺ, ʺWhat's a Mödravårdscentral? Is this the same as an ob/gyn?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in Stockholm should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit for my spouse at the Swedish municipality in Goteborg?ʺ

Collecting all that information on working and living in Sweden is quite laborious and time-consuming. Our InterNations Expat Guide for Sweden aims to help you and provides you with reliable info on those topics that matter to expats living in Sweden. The Guide includes information on many different areas ranging from local organisations and companies, to travel & accommodation or expat institutions and clubs, up to international schools. Typical questions related to expat life abroad, such as ʺDo I really need this "person number"? And what is the "Försäkringskassan" office for?ʺ, will no longer remain unanswered.

We certainly do not limit ourselves to Sweden, though. Our guide includes many more expat hotspots, with advice ranging from living in Brazil to living in Costa Rica.
