7.3 Visa procedure at a Swedish mission abroad

The visa application should be submitted by the private servant in person. To ensure that the private servant is fully informed of the main contents of the employment contract a brief interview will be held. When necessary, the employer is obliged to provide a translation of the employment contract in a language that the intended private servant understands.

Once the employment contract has been reviewed by the Protocol Department, the Swedish foreign mission will issue a type D visa.

Before a visa is issued, a copy of the insurance policy (healthcare and accident insurance) covering the first year of the private servant's stay in Sweden should be presented. As alternative, a travel insurance covering the first 3 months of stay is sufficient and can then be supplemented after arrival.
