Reminder for Swedes in UK to apply for resident permits post Brexit

2:45 min

The Swedish embassy in London is urging all Swedes wanting to continue living and working in the UK after the end of the Brexit transition period who have not yet replied for a British residence permit to do so as soon as possible.

A little too often I run into Swedes who have not thought about this, put it off or think it does not apply to them,"

Ambassador Sohlström estimates that there are still thousands of Swedes in the country who have not yet applied for a residence permit but who should do so.

EU citizens in the UK must have submitted a residence permit application by 30 June 2021.

Meanwhile, the Swedish parliament has yet to pass the bill formalising the details for Brits living in Sweden wanting to apply for residence permits post Brexit. A new procedure is expected to be in place by the beginning of December.
