Fees for visas and permits for visits

You must pay a charge to apply for a visa, an extension of a visa or a residence permit for a visit. The charge will not be returned if you do not get a visa, an extended visa or a residence permit for a visit.

Fees for a visa


If you submit your visa application at a Swedish mission abroad, the fee is EUR 60. The visa fee for minors aged 6-12 years is 35 euro. As a rule, the fee is payable in local currency. Further information is available from the embassy or consulate general where you will submit your application. There are however certain exceptions to this rule.
 

No fee


Totally exempt from the fee are
  • children under the age of six
  • schoolchildren, students in higher education, postgraduate students and their accompanying professors — on condition that the purpose of the trip is study or education
  • researchers — on condition that the purpose of the trip is scientific research
  • Citizens of Japan
  • relatives of citizens of the EU, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Switzerland if they are travelling with the relative or will meet in connection with the journey
