As part of the new law, from 1st June 2022, the Swedish government has introduced a new talent visa program for professionals who want to work in Sweden.
If you have an offer of employment from a Swedish company and plan to live and work only in Sweden for the next 4 years. The time spent on your work permit is counted towards your Swedish permanent residency application.
A standard work permit is processed within 10 days if the application is submitted by a company that is certified with the Migration Agency.
The EU Blue Card is Europe’s answer to the US Green Card.The EU Blue Card is a work- and residence permit for non-EU/EEA nationals. The European Blue Card was created to make it easier for for highly skilled workers to obtain the right to work in the EU. It provides comprehensive socio-economic rights and a path towards permanent residence and EU citizenship.
If you plan on working in other EU countries within the next 4 years, the Blue Card application might be best. Many EU countries have Blue Card permits it can in some cases be easier to move if you have one. Some EU countries will also count the time you have held a Blue Card in Sweden when reviewing an application for permanent residence.
An EU blue card application is generally processed within 2-3 weeks, but the Migration Agency has up to 90 days to process it. This means that if the case officer is busy, it will take longer to process than a standard permit.
