Applying for residence permit to Sweden

Uppehållstillstånd

We are so happy that you have in your heart to come to our Bible school! Arriving to Sweden might be hard, since the Swedish migration is very restrictive with accepting applications for residence permits. But in order to help you in the process, here is instructions on how you apply for the residence permit:

 

Residence permit for “other studies”

Word of Life is a private school that is not registered as school in the Swedish school system, and it is not classed as a higher education. Therefore you need to apply for a residence permit of “other studies”.

Before you start the process, make sure you read these pages on your requirements in order to apply for a residence permit:

https://www.migrationsverket.se/English/Private-individuals/Studying-in-Sweden/Other-studies.html#regler

Important! Under the question “You must be able to support yourself” you can see the updated amount of money per month you need to have on your bank account when you apply in order to be accepted.

YOU NEED to get an “Admission letter” instead of our regular “Acceptance letter”. If you have received an “Acceptance letter” only, please ask us for the “Admission letter” for students applying for a residence permit.
