Tips before working in Swedish Lapland

Work permits and visa requirements

Before traveling to Sweden for work, it’s crucial to understand the work permit and visa requirements. Non-EU/EEA citizens typically need a work permit to work legally in Sweden. The Swedish Migration Agency manages work permits, and you must apply for one before entering the country. The process may involve securing a job offer from a Swedish employer and meeting specific criteria. EU/EEA citizens generally have the right to work in Sweden without a permit but may need to register with the Swedish Tax Agency upon arrival.

Employment rights and conditions

Sweden has well-established labor laws that protect workers’ rights, including minimum wages, working hour regulations, and employment contracts. It’s important to know your rights as a worker, such as fair wages, working hours, vacation entitlement, and workplace safety.
