Easier for Foreign-born Parents to Stay in Sweden
Swedish migration authorities say they are easing the regulations for immigrants who have children with Swedish citizens – to avoid their having to return to their home country for 6 months in order to get a Swedish residence permit.
Many have been complaining about the long separation of the parent from the children.
The Swedish minister of migration says he’s positive to a change in the regulations, to allow the foreign-born parent to apply for residence while in Sweden. The measure still has to be formally approved by the 4 party, center-right government coalition.
