If you have moved to Sweden from abroad and are planning to live in Sweden for one year or
more, you are generally required to be registered in the Swedish Population Register. In order to
be registered in the Swedish Population Register (folkbokförd) you need to notify the Swedish
Tax Agency (Skatteverket) that you have moved to Sweden by personally visiting one of our
Tax Agency offices (servicekontor).
You can enter all your personal details in a digital form before your visit to the Tax Agency
office. You still need to print out the form and bring to the Tax Agency office, but the digital
service generally provides us with more accurate and complete information.
Use this form:
The Swedish population register holds information about everyone living here. The information we have about you
forms the base of important decisions that affect your life, such as where you can apply for healthcare, school and
child care or if you have succession rights.
