Refugees

How can we help you?

AFUIS intends to provide free accommodation to Ukrainian refugees until they become self-sufficient.

How to apply for protection?

Requirements for temporary protection under the EU Refugee Directive

You can obtain a residence permit with temporary protection according to the Refugee Directive if you:

  • Are a Ukrainian citizen and were living in Ukraine before February 24, 2022
  • Have a residence permit as a refugee or alternatively in need of protection in Ukraine
  • Is a family member of the two above.

If you have a passport or other ID documents showing that you belong to one of these groups, you must show them when you apply for protection.

How to apply for asylum?

If the above does not apply, you always have the right to apply for asylum.

Then you need to visit the Swedish Migration. On their page, you will find more information and addresses to the offices where you can apply.

What if you are bringing a pet with you?

There are rules for bringing animals into Sweden, among other things, to prevent us from getting rabies, which is a deadly disease that can affect both humans and animals. At the moment, there are force majeure exceptions for pets that come with their owners from Ukraine. This means that we assess from case to case which measures are necessary.

In case it is an emergency, call 112.

Skatteverket

When you get your residence permit you can go to Skatteverket and apply for a coordination number. This number is to identify you when interacting with authorities, banks and work.
