What do I need to know before moving to Sweden?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Sweden, they said...

"Sweden is a great place to live, but there are a few things expats should be aware of before moving. It is important to research the cost of living in Sweden, as it is generally higher than in other countries. Expats should also be aware of the language barrier, as Swedish is the official language of the country. Additionally, it is important to familiarize yourself with the Swedish culture and customs, as they can be quite different from other countries. Finally, expats should make sure to obtain the necessary visas and permits before moving to Sweden," commented one expat who made the move to Sweden.

"Research! That is the key to moving. Find your clan and glean as much information as possible from people who have crossed the pond. Most of the websites for newcomers have links and resource. Another important thing is talking to people already there," remarked another expat in Stockholm, Sweden.
