Assuming one is a permanent resident of an EU state other than Sweden (e.g. Czech Republic), what documents are needed for them to work in Sweden? The Swedish Migration Agency mentions that:
If you have previously held long-term resident status in another EU country and now fulfil the requirements for long-term resident status in Sweden, you may apply to transfer the status from the other country to Sweden.
This raises the following questions:
- Is it possible to start working in Sweden and then apply for a Swedish residence permit? Or do you have to apply for one in advance?
- What does "transfer the status" mean? Are you going to lose your old EU permanent residency card when you receive your Swedish one?
- What documents are needed to apply for a residency permit for the purpose of work? Is a work contract sufficient?
- How long does the process of receiving a Swedish residency card take for EU residents?
