Tourist visit

The Schengen visa is a permit for short visits to Sweden / the Schengen countries. The total period of stay in the Schengen area must not exceed 90 days during a six-month period. If you want to stay longer you must apply for a residence permit or visa for longer stays, so-called D - visa.

The Swedish Embassy in Dhaka also represents Denmark, Norway, Finland, Iceland, Poland, Slovenia, Latvia, The Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg in visa matters. The process and required documents are the same as when applying for a Sweden/ Schengen visa.
