Have insurance

Register with the Swedish Social Insurance Agency to avail the many social security benefits such as basic healthcare, parental benefits, child allowances, disability coverage, and other insurance payments.

Obtain Swedish Resident ID Card

Swedish ID card is a primary form of identification in the whole country. This can be used for opening bank accounts, to use credit cards, collecting packages from the post office, and also to verify your age before entering certain clubs or purchasing alcohol.

Open a bank account in Sweden

Opening your own bank account in Sweden is recommended as you can pay most bills online. Salaries can also be credited automatically by your employer to your account.

Get your own place to stay, preferably an apartment

Move out of your temporary lodging or any other arrangement and rent a apartment for yourself.

There are two types of rents: first hand and second hand

 First-hand means you sign an agreement with the building owner, while second-hand means you sign the agreement with someone who owns the apartment or has the first-hand contract on the apartment.
