Visa Information

Certain nationalities will require a visa to enter Sweden.

Please click here for a full list of nationalities who will require a visa.

Entry to Sweden is covered under the Schengen agreement, if you hold an existing Schengen visa  this may be sufficient, but we urge you to check with your local Swedish embassy.

Visa processing times will vary and we encourage you to apply for your visa as soon as possible. Please note, CRU Events are only able to issue a letter of invitation to registered delegates.

You can submit your application at the earliest three months before your planned visit. Apply as far in advance as possible, especially during the peak season. Usually, you get a decision within two weeks.

All applicants, applying for a Schengen visa, must submit biometric data - ten fingerprints and a digital photo. The biometric data is stored in the Visa Information System (VIS), which is an IT-system that allows Schengen States to exchange visa data. The biometric data is valid for 59 months.

A visa can be granted for between 1 and 90 days. You have to make use of these days within a given time frame of six months at the most (period of validity).
