For the latest updates on how the coronavirus/Covid-19 is affecting Sweden, please go to krisinformation.se ↗️ for official emergency information from Swedish authorities.
So, as you know, there’s currently a temporary ban on all non-essential travel to Sweden due to Covid-19. This temporary ban was put in place on 19 March 2020. But on 2 July 2020, the Swedish government announced new exemptions to the non-EU travel ban. And the travel ban does not apply to those with a residence permit for studies in Sweden. But several Swedish missions abroad may still be limited in their capacity to assist in the processing of residence permit application within normal time frames.
