Normal process time for incoming visa applications is 3-5 days.
If items are missing in the application, it will take longer time.
Please note that the return postage is not included in the visa fee. You need to prepare a pre-payed label from Postnord or DHL Express. Please print and attach the PostNord label securely to an envelope before sending it to the Consulate. We are not able to print it for you if you only provide the receipt or QR-code.
DHL-labels do not need to be attached to an envelope.
If you put any amount of stamps on the return envelope, it will be sent back by normal post without tracking-ID, even if you write REK on it by hand.
Stamps from Norway and Finland can not be used in Sweden for the return. The consulate does not accept international stamp coupons.
In November and December please allow a few extra days due to the large number of incoming applications.
For faster service please see Express visa information. For the express visa option always make an appointment by email.
