Sweden is home to many multi-national organisations, including well-known Swedish brands such as Ikea, Volvo, Electrolux, Ericsson, H&M, Skanska, Spotify, Klarna, iZettle, and Skype. Multi-national organisations regularly send existing employees to work in other branches or subsidiaries in other countries such as Sweden. The main way this is done is through intra-company transfer (ICT) immigration schemes. ICT visas or permits enable foreign workers to relocate to work in another country for their existing employer for a temporary period to deliver specific projects. This may include rolling out a new product line in a new country, setting up new facilities, or training staff on new products or services. In this article, we will explain the eligibility criteria for the Intra-Company Transfer Permit for Sweden and how to apply.
Swedish ICT permits enable citizens of countries outside the EU/EEA and Switzerland who are employed by a company outside the EU/EEA to work in a Swedish branch or subsidiary for a temporary period. The scheme is typically available to those in more senior-level positions, including managers and specialists, however, it is also open to trainees wishing to gain practical training with the company. As the Swedish Migration Agency states, “An ICT permit gives you as a citizen of a country outside the EU/EEA and Switzerland the right to travel into, stay and work in Sweden at a company that is established in Sweden within the same corporate group as the host company. If you have already been granted an ICT permit by a different EU Member State but are to work in Sweden, you can get an ICT authorisation for long-term mobility”.
