If you are planning to settle in Sweden with your family, you must have to re-look the Swedish migration legislation. The country’s new migration legislation came into force on 20 July 2021replacing the temporary legislation which was introduced in 2016.

According to new legislation, New visitors should live in the country for at least 3 years before they could be considered for a permanent residence this also includes people who migrate on dependent visa. People under this category would also be given temporary permission and then will be considered for permanent permit only  after scrutiny.  While the situation is already getting grim, It is also now mandatory for immigrants to show a monthly income of at least 8,287 kronar. This rule is only exempted to citizens belonging to the European Union and EAA.
