Asylum in Sweden is one of the ways to immigrate for people who are not safe in their homeland. These people can apply for asylum in Sweden by providing the necessary documents and evidence. Sweden is a party to the United Nations Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees, which means that it has a separate body for examining refugee applications, called the Swedish Migration Board.

If you are applying for asylum in Sweden, you must apply to the Swedish Migration Board or the Swedish Police Office after entering Sweden and apply for asylum. Asylum seekers cannot apply for asylum before entering Sweden. The police assist the person in arranging the application and referring it to the Swedish Migration Board. Documents required to apply for asylum in Sweden must be accompanied by special forms for the identification of the home and the home or any other document in order to be able to apply. Also at this stage, the biometric information of the person is obtained and such an applicant is fully identified.
Examining your asylum application It is considered that the applicant has not applied for asylum in another country, because according to Dublin law, if an applicant has applied for asylum in another country, he or she must return to that country. Transfer to a refugee camp After initial checks, the asylum seeker is transferred to a refugee camp in Sweden. The refugee lives in the camp until his / her refugee status is determined. Applying for asylum is a time-consuming process, so asylum seekers have to endure limited living conditions and facilities in the camp for a period of time. If eligible, the person will be notified of the time of the in-person review of the application or interview. The interview with the asylum seeker arrives at the Swedish Migration Board on a specific date and time and is intended to provide the necessary corrections, as well as the necessary living and income documents to the authorities. The officials of the mentioned office record all the details of the interview and the answers of the asylum seeker in written and audio form. At this stage, the applicant is asked questions to assess the individual’s circumstances and his or her integrity to the asylum application. This interview is conducted by an employee of the Immigration Office or a police officer. It is necessary to bring any documents or anything else that supports the asylum seeker’s statements during the interview. If necessary, the Swedish Migration Board will translate documents, statements or other material into Swedish.
After the interview
a temporary residence permit is issued to the LMA card, which allows asylum seekers to legally live in Sweden and use their basic needs until a final decision is made on their asylum application. In fact, with this card, it is recognized that the applicant is an asylum seeker, who will be deprived of this card after receiving the final answer to the asylum application. Acceptance of an asylum application The Swedish Migration Board makes its decision to accept or reject asylum in accordance with the Geneva Convention, the Dublin Act and on the basis of the documents submitted and submits it in writing to the asylum seeker. But under asylum law, newcomers can now apply for permanent residence after at least three years of living in Sweden and learning the Swedish language. If an asylum seeker is found to be eligible for asylum in Sweden, he or she will be issued a residence permit.
Extension of temporary residence
When the temporary residence permit expires, the refugee can apply for an extension of residence for a period of three months before the expiration. With the necessary checks, if the applicant is unable to pay his / her living expenses, the Swedish government will deposit a sum into his / her bank card and, if necessary, provide him / her with free health services. The right to a lawyer Most asylum seekers have the right to a public lawyer paid for by the Swedish government.
