Application Regarding The Possibility Of Extending Stay In Sweden Due To Cancelled Flights Etc.

Stokholm Büyükelçiliği 20.03.2020

The Swedish Migration Agency, which is the responsible agency for these questions, informs as follows:

Individuals who can prove that they are not able to leave Sweden due to for example cancelled flights can, upon submitting an application, be granted a visa extension provided the total length of stay in the Schengen region will not exceed 90 days.

If the stay in Schengen will exceed 90 days, an application for a visitor’s permit must be submitted.

An application to extend a stay in Sweden is to be submitted before the expiry of the current allowed stay.
