From late 2022, nationals from around 60 previously visa-exempt countries will be able to apply for the Sweden ETIAS authorisation before visiting this Nordic country. Byevisa has compiled all the key information about this new EU system ahead of its launch so you can find out if this will apply to you.

All About the ETIAS for Sweden

Organising a trip to the country that brought the world ABBA? Whether you’re looking for pop music, green forests, Viking relics, stylish design or searching for the Northern Lights, Sweden has something to offer all travellers. Before you book your flights, however, you should check if you need Sweden ETIAS authorisation! As a result of recent changes in EU legislation, citizens of certain countries including the United States and the UK must now apply for travel authorisation in order to enter Swedish territory.  

This may sound complicated, but don’t let it put you off visiting the largest country in Northern Europe. The process is actually very simple. You can complete the Sweden visa application online from your computer, mobile or tablet. All you need are your passport information, some personal details and a valid card or PayPal account to pay the fee. 

Once your application has been approved, your Sweden visa for tourists will be valid for 3 years. During this time you can visit ‘the elongated country’ for trips of up to 90 days during any 180-day period. As it’s a Multiple-Entry pass, you can enter and exit as you please during this time frame. With its mild summers and breathtaking freezing winters, Sweden is a joy to visit at any time of the year.  

The Sweden travel visa not only allows you to visit this Scandi country, but it also gives you free roam of the 25 other nations that form the Schengen including neighboring Norway, Finland and Denmark. Please bear in mind that although you can visit other Schengen zone countries with this pass, if you apply for the Sweden ETIAS, you must first enter the Schengen Area in this part of Scandinavia.

What is the Difference Between the Sweden ETIAS and a Sweden Visa?

If you are a national of a country that is not in the European Union or Schengen zone, you must either apply for the Sweden ETIAS or obtain a Swedish travel visa before your trip. The type of travel authorisation you require depends on which passport you hold. 

Getting the ETIAS is a very quick process that you can complete online through Byevisa. Once approved, this authorisation is valid for 3 years, significantly longer than a tourist visa. During this time period, you can travel to any of the countries within the Schengen Area for up to 90 days in any 180-day interval. 

If you are from India, Malaysia, Indonesia or another country that isn’t eligible for the ETIAS, then you will need to apply for a visa instead. There are a number of different options for short term travel including the Sweden Schengen visa. If you are planning to stay for longer, then you will need to look into long-term visa options.

How Much Does an ETIAS for Sweden Cost?

The EU charges X per applicant for this authorisation. There is no charge for children under 18 or adults over 70; in this case, applicants only need to pay Byevisa’s processing fee.

The fee to handle your paperwork varies depending on how quickly you need the authorisation. Once your application is processed it will arrive in your email inbox ready for you to print.

Choose from these 3 convenient options:

  • Standard service for X per person. This takes X days.
  • Rapid processing for X per person. This takes X days.
  • Highly Rapid delivery for X per person. This takes just X days.

To clarify, in total you pay the X Sweden visa fee plus the Byevisa processing charge. For example, if you select our Standard service, this would be X (X EU fee + X processing fee).

Ready to visit the Vasa museum and eat as many Swedish meatballs as your stomach can handle? Here are some other important things to consider ahead of your trip.

Consult our visa checker to get instant confirmation of Sweden visa requirements. Many nationalities including Americans and Canadians must apply for the ETIAS if they want to visit.

The EU offers web pages containing detailed information about the new system. We have summarised the most important information here to make planning your trip as simple as possible.
Printing your ETIAS is recommended along with your other travel documents. However, as the ETIAS authorisation is linked electronically to your passport, this is just a precautionary measure.

This new authorisation system hasn’t been launched yet. However, as soon as it is, you will be able to make your application through Byevisa. The launch date is scheduled for late 2022 and from 2023 the ETIAS becomes mandatory.
If you are under 18 or over 70 years of age, you can apply for this for free; there is no charge incurred by the EU. You will still have to pay the Byevisa processing fee though.
Having a pass that is valid for the duration of your stay is essential when travelling. When your authorisation is nearing its expiration date, simply apply for a new one through our online form.
It is very unlikely that your ETIAS will be denied: the Swedes welcome almost 30 million tourists per year. If your application is rejected, Byevisa will get in touch with you and explain the next steps.
If your passport expires, your travel pass will no longer be valid. You will need to apply for a new passport and then request the ETIAS authorisation again.
Those travellers who hold dual citizenship need to choose which passport they want to travel with (taking into account eligibility requirements). You then apply for authorisation using that passport, in the same way as other citizens.
