5.1 Agrément

Requests for agrément for Heads of Mission must be submitted to the Protocol Department with a note verbale from the sending state through the Embassy of the sending state. The note should clearly specify the name of the proposed Head of Mission, the official residence of his/her posting and it should include an updated CV in English. Requests for agrément usually take 4–6 weeks to process, except during the summer months when it may take longer.

A non-resident Head of Mission must obtain agrément in the country where he/she has official residence before a request for agrément can be processed in Sweden.
