Sweden is a popular destination for German emigrants. Often it is new career prospects and the good earning opportunities that justify a permanent move to Sweden. Obtaining the right of residence is not a problem for EU citizens if the formalities are complied with, as Sweden is a member of the European Union.
The complete move to Scandinavia should be meticulously organized. Especially because the entire household moves with it, this is a logistical challenge and requires good and proper preparation. Without moving planning and a checklist, the overview is quickly lost. Thus, it should already be determined in time, which travel option to Scandinavia is the most favorable. Our moving company is familiar with everything that will simplify your moving project for you. Experienced moving consultants have the answer to all your questions and the solution to every requirement. Our complex moving service includes
as well as the professional securing of the removal goods during the transport craftsman service on site, just to name a few. Of course, our moving company also helps with the regulations to be observed. In Sweden you do not need a work permit or a residence permit. You only have to register at the local registration office, which is integrated into the Swedish tax office. To do this, you will need proof of your Swedish residence and your employment contract. Once you have registered, you will also need to apply for your personal number here, which is not possible via the embassy. The re-registration of the car requires a little more patience. Firstly, an application must be made to check the origin of the car, secondly, it must go through the Swedish MOT and thirdly, insurance must be taken out. Only when the Swedish vehicle registration certificate has been issued can the car be driven.
The Kingdom of Sweden is the largest country in Scandinavia. It is mainly known for its pure and unspoiled nature. Long coastlines, many lakes, and high mountains on the border with Norway characterize the country. 85% of Swedes live in the south of the country, especially in the capital Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö. The distances in the country are huge. For example, it is 1200 km from Malmö in the south to the sparsely populated Lapland in the north. Therefore, a vacation in Lapland is rather preferred by individualists.
The larger streams of tourists, on the other hand, are drawn to the south of the country. The province of Smaland, made famous by Pippi Longstocking’s stories, is especially popular with families with children. Economically, Sweden is one of the most developed countries in the EU. The price level in Sweden is partly higher than in Germany. On the other hand, Sweden offers its citizens a comprehensive range of social benefits.
Our checklists are helpful in planning your move and have valuable tips for you. Do not forget to deregister your previous residence in Germany. In order to integrate quickly in your new place of residence, it is advantageous to learn the Swedish language. Although Sweden is an EU country, it has retained the Swedish krona as its currency. You should know that there are some important entry requirements for pets.
