Work permit holder appeals rejection of residency permit

6:55 min
  • Rameez Hussein applied for permanent residency permit after working in Sweden for over six years, but the Migration Agency rejected it due to mistakes made by previous employers.
  • His lawyer says they can prove a "strong connection" to the Swedish labour market, and that historic mistakes should not be taken into account.
  • The not-for-profit law firm Centre for Justice believes this is the first of many similar cases to come.
