  • As part of the government's focus on highly skilled labour immigration, the Migration Agency has also been told to speed up and simplify the process for certain applicants.

  • From January next year, work permit applications for jobs requiring higher education will automatically be separated from the rest, with the aim of processing those applications within 30 days.

  • ”This will not affect the handling time for other cases,” says Fredrik Bengtsson at the Migration Agency.
