New procedures for Visa and Residence Permits

In order to comply with Swedish regulation changes have now been implemented regarding the application procedure for visa and residence permits for Sweden.
As of 1 October 2008 all visa and residence permit applicants now have to apply in person at the Embassy in Hanoi. It is no longer possible to hand in your application at the Honorary Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City.
This applies to all applicants with no exception.
The Embassy requires 10 working days in order to process a visa application. Residence permit applications are sent to the Migration Board in Sweden for decision and will take longer. Please make sure that you have all the correct documents before visiting the Embassy.
For more information regarding the opening hours and contact information of the Embassy, please consult our website.
