Studying in Sweden
Visa to Sweden
As of March 25th, 2001, Sweden became an operative member of the Schengen agreement. Therefore, in order to apply for visa, the applicant should have an invitation from a reference person in Sweden. The application with a list of required documents can be obtained at the reception. Each case is dealt with individually and there is a processing period of 14-21 days. All Arabic documents should be translated into English. There is a non-refundable fee for each application.
Residence and work permit
Applicants with a close family/economic relationship with a reference person in Sweden (spouse, partner, unmarried children under the age of 18) can apply for a residence permit. The application with a list of required documents can be obtained at the reception. All Arabic documents should be translated into English. There is a fee for each application (with a few exceptions).
After presenting all required documents, an appointment for an interview, which will be conducted at the Embassy, will be made with a waiting period of 2-3 months. Children over 16 years of age will also be interviewed and will subsequently be given an interview appointment. The interviews together with the complete application forms are then forwarded to the Swedish Migration Board (Migrationsverket) for the decision. The waiting period is 6 months to one year. There is a fee for residence permits in Sweden (with a few exceptions).
The Embassy legalizes only documents that have been notarized by the Jordanian or the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Legalization fee is 8 JD.

The prevailing situation in the region remains unstable and unpredictable, and events can lead to a rapid increase in tension. When in Jordan, it is therefore important to follow the news, both in local and international media, very carefully.
Visitors should avoid demonstrations and be careful when going to places where large crowds are gathering, for example refugee camps, mosques, university campuses and certain embassies, etc. Extra care should also be taken when visiting downtown areas of Amman.
