What should I pack when moving to Sweden?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Sweden to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"I wish I had brought: My comfortable king size bed - One year's supply of large sized shoes - Contact lenses and solutions I wish I had left behind: My lifetime supply of books T-shirts - you can only wear it for 3 months in a year! My mobile - no one calls," said another expat in Stockholm, Sweden.

"When moving to Sweden, it is important to pack warm clothing, as the climate is much cooler than many other countries. It is also important to bring a good raincoat and waterproof shoes, as the weather can be unpredictable. Additionally, it is a good idea to bring a few items of furniture, such as a bed, sofa, and dining table, as these items can be expensive to purchase in Sweden. Finally, it is important to bring any necessary documents, such as a passport, visa, and work permit," wrote a member who made the move to Sweden.
