Coming to Sweden as a relative – legal certainty in family reunification cases (RiR 2021:9)

The Swedish National Audit Office (Swedish NAO) has audited whether the Swedish Migration Agency and missions abroad (Swedish embassies and consulates) operate in a way that ensures that the processing of family reunification cases maintains high legal standards. Family reunification cases refer to residence permits for people who wish to move to a relative living in Sweden. The application must be submitted from the country where the applicant is permanently or habitually resident. The Swedish Migration Agency in Sweden is responsible for the processing and decision-making, but the missions abroad play a central role in the process by checking the documents in the application and interviewing the applicant abroad.
