Visa for Investment: Sweden

Sweden is one of the best-internationalized economies not only in the European Union but also in the entire world. Its central location, high productivity, first-rate infrastructure and encouraging policies really make it one of the best destinations for investment to foreign investors.

Whatever you want to achieve in Sweden, our aim is to ensure that you understand the entire process from start to finish, allowing you to cut through the jargon and red tape to realise your dream of living in Sweden.

If you are going to work for longer than three months starting up and running your own business, or if you are becoming a part owner of a company, you must have a residence permit. The residence permit must already have been granted before you travel to Sweden.
