Finding your way around the website
Information om Sverige has different access points which are adapted to different target groups or areas of interest. Here are access points with information for:
- people who have sought or are going to seek asylum
- people who have recently been granted a residence permit
- People under 18 years of age who have arrived in Sweden without their parents.
There is also an access point with information about how Sweden works, for people who want to know more about Sweden.
In order to get an overview of what information is available on the website, you can click on the various access points and read more about the pages grouped there. This might be about various rules if you are an asylum seeker or have been granted a residence permit.
The access points usually have similar headings. For example, about jobs, housing, medical care and finances. If you want to know more about how Sweden works in any of these areas, click first on the access point that suits you and then on the heading that interests you.
The website also has pages where you can begin practising Swedish, pages where you can learn more about being a parent in Sweden, and pages about the civic orientation course and the course material "About Sweden".
