The Swedish economy and opportunities attract skilled immigrants from all over the world. For the European Union citizens, there are no visa requirements when moving to Sweden. Citizens from Non-EU countries need to apply for a visa. In this case, there are 2 visa types according to the length of stay: Less than 90 days and more than 90 days. Visas can be granted on various reasons such as tourism, medical reasons, family reunion, employment, and others.
In the recent years Sweden has experienced a housing shortage. Thus, the cost of renting an apartment or a house in Sweden is high. Most expats are moving to one of Sweden’s five main cities: Stockholm, Malmö, Gothenburg, Uppsala, or Solna. In these Swedish cities, the minimum house rent is 10,700 SEK per month (€980). For basic utilities such as electricity, water, heating, and cooling, expats can expect to pay somewhere between 550–880 SEK (€50–70).

When you move to Sweden with children, you need to know that local compulsory schooling consists of four stages:
Gymnasium (upper secondary school or high school) is optional.
When you complete your upper secondary education, you can go on to study at one of the acclaimed Swedish universities. EU citizens can study for free in Sweden. For non-EU citizens, the tuition is sky-high with prices in the range of €8.000- €20.000 per academic year.
The healthcare system in Sweden is funded with tax-payers money, and most healthcare-related services are free for the public. Healthcare in Sweden is not completely free of charge, make sure that you budget the SEK1.100 (€90) that you have to pay yearly for your regular doctor check-ups.
