Renewal of Passport for Adults 18 or Older

Passport applications can also be done at the Consulate General in Jerusalem. For applicants 18 years or older who have previously had a Swedish passport the following is required when applying for a new passport.  

 

  • Personal attendance
  • The old passport, valid or expired (if the old passport has expired, please bring valid photo-id)
  • Police report or notification of loss (förlustanmälan) if the old passport has been stolen or lost
  • For applicants with only Swedish citizenship that are not registered in Sweden: Residence permit or a certificate from the Israeli Ministry of Interior as to your status in Israel.
  • For applicants with both Swedish and Israeli citizenships born in Sweden: The "Certificate Attesting Israeli Citizenship" from the Israeli Ministry of Interior.
  • For applicants with both Swedish and Israeli citizenships born in Israel: If you have never lived in Sweden or have not visited Sweden in circumstances which indicate an attachment to the country a certificate showing that you have retained your Swedish citizenship after the age of 22 is required.

Certificate of retaining Swedish citizenship after the age of 22:

To avoid losing your Swedish citizenship if you were born outside of Sweden and never lived in Sweden you can apply to retain it. You must do this after you have turned 18 but before you reach the age of 22. You do not need to make such an application if, at any time, you have been resident in Sweden or if you have regularly visited Sweden.

Note that you will not lose your Swedish citizenship if this would cause you to become stateless.

For more information on losing and retaining Swedish citizenship, please visit the Sweden Migration Agency website.
