Requirements of Swedish embassies and consulates
Some requirements differ from country to country. It is therefore important that you check what applies in your case. The requirements may change depending on the current circumstances. You will find more information on the website of the relevant embassy. Click on the link at the bottom of the page find the appropriate embassy.
Special agreement for certain countries
Special rules apply for citizens of Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Georgia, Macedonia, Moldavia, Montenegro, Russia, Serbia and the Ukraine due to the Visa Facilitation Agreement concluded between these countries and the EU. More information about this agreement can be obtained from the embassies and consulates of the EU Member States in these countries.
Applying for a visa
You should hand in your visa application to a Swedish embassy or consulate-general. In certain countries, Sweden is represented by another Schengen country. There are also countries where Sweden does not have its own mission and is not represented by another country. If this is the case, anyone wishing to hand in a visa application must travel to the nearest country where there is a Swedish embassy or consulate-general.
If you intend to hand in your visa application at another Schengen country's mission abroad, you should contact the mission in advance. In such cases, it is this country's documentary requirements which will apply. The documents should also be translated into the language of that country.
For more information and to download application forms, please visit the Swedish Migration website.
For those who require a visa to allow their entry into Sweden, ISTR is happy to provide a letter of invitation. To receive a letter of invitation, please send a written request to ISTR_Secretariat@jhu.edu, with your full name, address, organizational affiliation, fax number with dialing codes, and full passport details (passport number, issue and expiry dates, nationality, etc.).
These letters of invitation will only be sent when ISTR has received the delegate’s conference registration form and fee.
It can take up to three to four months to secure a visa; please allow ample time to secure your visa.
