If you apply for a visa to visit Sweden as a minor, you need the documents listed below. The documents you want to support your statements with, are to be handed in as copies, and you should bring the original for comparison.

Minors are anyone under 18 years of age.

The forms must be completed either in Swedish or in English. Documents issued by the authorities in your country of origin are to be submitted together with a translation in Swedish or English by an authorised translator. Unless otherwise stated below, documents are to be handed in as copies, and you should bring the original for comparison. They are to be issued by the relevant authority in your country of origin.

You must have:

  • The documents required by all visa applicants. Read more under ‘Required documents’. Visa applications for minors must be signed by their custodians and intail contact information such as e-mailadress and phone number.
  • The consent of the custodian or guardian. If there is only one custodian, a document showing that this is the case must be attached to the application.
  • Birth certificate of the minor.
  • Copies of the custodians’ ID cards for comparison of signature.
