EU Rules VS Swedish Rules

Indlæg af Jesper&Anna » 04.12.2013 14:10:18

Hello Everyone..

I have a danish husband and I am a non eu citizen. We are moving in Sweden.

What should we apply EU RULES or SWEDISH RULES?

What is the difference? Is there a website I can read so that we might know what to consider?

Thank you so much.

You can read about it on

Main difference is about the time a permit will be valid before you will get a permanent residence permit and the requirements (there are no requirements after Swedish rule but a number of financial requirements after EU rules).

Your Danish husband can also read the guidelines provided on this site under "rådgivning" at the top menu bar.

The difference is also, that as the main rule - but there are exceptions to this now - you can not apply after swedish rules while in Sweden. You need to apply from your home country and wait there for 3-9 month, while the application is being processed. For many cupples this is in fact the most important difference between the two set of rules.
