It brings all the information, in several different languages, together in one place. It includes civic information and answers to questions about how housing, medical care and education work in Sweden. You will also find information about your rights and about the public authorities you will have contact with when you first arrive in Sweden. You can look for vacant jobs or check where the nearest medical care centre or school is located. Use as your guide to Swedish society.
