Applying for a visa

If you want to visit Sweden and you are a citizen of a country outside the EU, you may need to apply for a visa.

List of countries whose citizens require visas to visit Sweden

Note: The Embassy of Sweden in Pyongyang also handles Schengen visa applications for Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Italy, Norway and Spain. Please consult with their respective authorities to find out whether you need to apply for a visa. The steps to apply for a visa to these countries are the same as if you were going to Sweden, and you can follow all instructions on this website. There is one exception, however: If your destination is Italy, please hand in your application to the Italian Development Cooperation.


If you are a private person you submit your application documents in person at the Embassy. An appointment is required. Please call the Embassy at +850-2-3817 485 to book a meeting.
