Extending your permit

Residence permits and work permits are granted only for a limited period in Sweden. Depending on how long you will stay in Sweden, it may be necessary to renew your permit, once or twice.

You can apply to extend your permit online. You must submit your application before your current permit expires.

Travel abroad during the processing time

If you travel abroad before your new permit is granted, it may be difficult for you to enter Sweden. You may need to wait for a new decision outside Sweden.
