Your embassy understood the question.
When you apply for a short term visa (or the effective equivalent on entry to a country), one of the most important questions the official has to answer is "Is this person likely to leave the country at the end of the trip, or do they have any reason to overstay". By applying for a residence permit you have told Sweden ...
You didn't say what country you're currently a citizen of, and the rules for citizens of Nordic countries, EU/EEA countries, and other countries are all a little different.
But according to the "Becoming a Swedish Citizen" Section on the Migrationsverket web site,
If you have travelled abroad on, for example, short trips or holidays, this is of no ...
You would have to look at a second country outside the Schengen area, or have her apply for a national long-stay visa for Portugal or Sweden. The 90/180 rule applies to the entire Schengen area, unless she has a national visa.
There are parts of Europe outside Schengen, but Portugal is inside. The UK is outside Schengen, and so are Ireland and much of the ...
You will pay 30% tax on 22/30 of the profit, so in practice 22% tax on the profit. No profit means no tax.
Cooperative flats are more than 99% of the market. More info about tax on cooperative flats here: Skatteverket
The major carriers are:
While in Sweden you can get a prepaid SIM from any of them (except Tele2 but including Comviq) at for example Pressbyrån or 7-Eleven
but I'm afraid none of the carriers ship SIMs abroad. Registering a personnummer can be done later with the carrier for some extra benefits but is optional.
Hardly but still doable, but don't think about saving
35,000 will get you 26,000 in your bank (calculate here)
An apartment could cost around 5000
Two public transportation tickets would be around 1800, electricity 500 (heating is usually included afaik), mobile phone 200 (2 simple pre paids at 95) and you still need food, hot clothing and the occasional ...
Would I be allowed to join him there?
Maybe. At article 3(2)(b), the directive includes among its beneficiaries "the partner with whom the Union citizen has a durable relationship, duly attested." The interpretation and application of this provision are left to each country, however, and I don't know what criteria Sweden applies to the recognition of such ...
As there was no answer posted to this question, I am posting my own experience.
It is absolutely possible to apply for a residence permit in Sweden from London or any other location. The Swedish migration agency (migrationsverket) does not impose any restriction on the place of application as long as you are a valid visa holder (or a residence permit holder)...
It's unclear exactly what you're asking about.
If you lived in Sweden before and were folkbokförd (registered in the population register) then you will have received a personnummer. You keep that number for life. However, you do not keep the status of being folkbokförd for life, which is the part that actually matters. If you leave Sweden, you cease to be ...
