Welcome to the Embassy of Sweden in London

Our task is to represent Sweden, the Swedish Government in the UK and to promote Swedish interests.

We do this by having a continuous dialogue with British representatives, for example regarding cooperation within the EU and through information and collaboration with the cultural and defence sectors as well as with industry, public authorities and other organisations.

The Embassy handles a large number of applications for Swedish passports, registrations of  children/newborns, visas and other consular and official matters.

Some twenty seven persons work at the Embassy. Ambassador Torbjörn Sohlström is Head of Mission. We have a Cultural Counsellor, a Defence Attaché, diplomatic and locally employed staff. Three posts are funded by other Swedish Ministries or Public Authorities.

There are also a number of Swedish Consulates acting on behalf of the Embassy throughout the UK.

The Embassy has close contact with other Swedish organisations in the UK such as  Business Sweden, VisitSweden, the Swedish church and the Swedish Chamber of Commerce.

We also collaborate with many Swedish cultural practitioners and journalists living in Britain.
