2:55 min
  • The highest migration court of appeal (Migrationsöverdomstolen) has decided to hear the case of an Indian masters student, who was told her residency permit would not be extended as she had not studied full-time.

  • The case could have significance for other international students, who have faced delays in finishing their higher education in Sweden, because of the pandemic.

  • Supreme Migration Court only takes on cases when there is a need for guidance and a clear precedence.
