Personnummer (Personal identity number)

​An identity designation that everyone who is registered in the population register in Sweden is given. You get your personal identity number from the Swedish Tax Agency. Once you have been given a number, you keep the same number for the rest of your life. Your personal identity number is not changed when you move from or to Sweden.
