Sweden: Employers must include insurance certificates in some work permit applications

Following a court ruling, the Migration Board is enforcing the rule that employers must provide health, life and occupational injury insurance coverage to all employees. Therefore, new work permit applications for applicants who have worked in Sweden in the seven years and renewal work permit applications must include insurance certificates for the last seven years, even if the employee worked for other employers.

Sweden: Extra administrative step to delay work permit process

Work permit applicants must now submit their employment offer letter to a local Swedish labour union for comment, which will add up to five business days to the work permit application process.
