​A portal for new arrivals

This portal has been created to make your arrival in Sweden easier. The site is intended to give you answers about Swedish society and which authorities you will come into contact with during your first time in Sweden. You can follow the process step by step, from getting your residence permit to the time you become part of Swedish society and establish yourself on the labour market or in education. This portal has been built with the help of other newly arrived people. Thanks to their help, you can read about things that may be difficult to find out yourself, or things that you did not even realise you needed to know.
