Important checklist

Dear members,

Here is a basic but important checklist which you should follow while you are thinking about to apply for your work permit or work permit extension.


You should be offered a salary in accordance with the Swedish Collective agreements or in line with the occupation or industrial practice.  It is also important that you should have salary increment every year. Please communicate with your  relevant labor union to know more about it.


The migrations agency requires that your employer must assure you following insurances:

  • Health Insurance
  • Life Insurance
  • Occupational Injury Insurance
  • Occupational Pension Insurance

It is important that the insurance must starts from the day you begin your work.


You should have right to have 25 days paid vacation every year. However, it is also important that you must take your vacation every year (At least 20 days. You can save rest of the 5 days to use in your next year).We have experienced last year that in some cases vacation payment was provided every month with the salary (the term used as “semester ersättning / vacation compensation”). This practice is incorrect. If you still have this issue, please inform your employer for correction.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for any kind of assistant.
