As a brown skinned arab you will be too busy screwing Swedish blondes to even think about working. Seriously, what type of visa will you have? From your other post I will assume it is not to join a Swedish partner. I can assume also not to start your own business or be a student. If you don't have a job than clearly not a work visa thus you must be coming as an asylum seeker. Is that correct as it makes a great difference in your ability to survive here. Knowing this will help to answer your question. Depending on this the answer it will be very hard, extremely hard, or nearly impossible. As an asylum seeker your chances of finding lots of blondes has greatly diminished but survival rate has increased. Looking forward to your reply.

Yes as an asylum seeker you can partake in government work programs offered by Arbetsformedelingen. The most important thing is to attend SFI Swedish classes for the first year. Good luck.

Not that I know anything about forklifts, but will they not require a standard Swedish driving license as well?
