Välkommen till Sverige! Congratulations on your new adventure! We hope you will be very happy in Sweden. Currently we understand that about 2,500 people with Irish citizenship are living here.
Although the Society’s board doesn’t itself have the capacity to provide information on moving, housing, education etc. to everyone who arrives, collectively our members have a wealth of experience and are more than willing to help. By joining the Society, you will be added to our Facebook group where you can get in touch with them and we have a noticeboard on our website with threads designated to this.
Membership costs just 100 kr for the first year (200 kr thereafter) and you can pay by credit/debit card or international bank transfer if you don’t have a Swedish bank account. You’ll find more information about membership and all the benefits here.
The Tax Agency deals with the civil registration of private individuals (meaning you can prove you live here and can avail of services), as well as with taxes. You'll find important information about how to register yourself properly at their website here (in English).
