I live far from Kyiv. Can the Embassy send the residence permit card to my home address?

No. You have to come personally to the Embassy in Kyiv to collect the card. Georgian citizens have the possibility to collect the card at the Embassy of Sweden in Tbilisi.

I was recently granted a residence permit, and I am now waiting for the residence permit card to arrive to the Embassy. Three weeks have already passed. But I have to go to Sweden already in four days, in order to attend my friend’s wedding. Can I go to Sweden without the card?

No, you cannot travel to Sweden without the card. The card is produced in Sweden and then sent to the Embassy. There is no possibility to speed up the delivery process, unfortunately.
