Due to space limitations, the petitioner is not typically allowed inside the embassy in Stockholm at the time of the interview.

Below is information regarding an interpreter, per the email appointment notice received from the Stockholm embassy:

If you do not speak Swedish or English you must bring a translator to your interview, your petitioner may not translate for you. For a list of authorized translators please see: http://www.kammarkollegiet.se/

For post specific instructions regarding arrival at the U.S. Embassy in Stockholm, please see: http://travel.state.gov/content/dam/visas/Supplemental/STK%20-%20Stockholm.pdf
