Resident in Sweden?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I'm a swede living in Sweden and is going to marry a US citizen. My question is, does he have to be a resident in Sweden before applying for DCF?

And if so, for how long?

I've read that in some countries they have to be in the country for some time, everything from 60 days-6 months. I hope you can help me :)

Thanks :D

You will find a load of info on this page at the Stockholm consulate web site.

Also, this page gives details about getting an immigrant visa for a spouse.

And this page, at the very bottom, indicates that it is required that the beneficiary (yourself) be a permanent resident of Sweden. Obviously you are!! I couldn't see anything to indicate that the US citizen needed to be a resident, so it might be that there is no requirement. However, I would read these, and other pages on the web site very carefully. You might also consider calling the consulate for advice. The phone number and hours of availability are shown on the first link above.

Best of luck,

G

furball just went through DCF in Sweden and it appears that USC was not a resident.

So it appears that the USC can file the I-130 in Stockholm... I would PM them to make sure...

The USC does not need to be resident of Sweden to DCF in Stockholm. Just make sure that the USC is planning to be in Stockholm long enough to have the marriage recorded and to get the right document at the tax authority. It will be the one that includes your parents names on it.
