Moving to Sweden

Obstacles to the Free Movement of EU Citizens

Citizens of the European Union (EU) have the right to visit, work, study and retire in other member states. The free movement of persons becomes more important for commerce as production assumes a more specialized and internationalized nature. Production can depend on fast access to the skills and expertise of a few specialists, and it should therefore be easy for them to move between production sites and customers in different member states.

In this report the Swedish National Board of Trade focuses on the situation of EU citizens who want to move and work in Sweden. While in many ways, it is easy to live in Sweden as an EU citizen, obstacles still remain that need to be overcome. The report is an edited version of a 2013 report in Swedish: Att flytta till Sverige - hinder för den fria rörligheten för EU-medborgare.
