Hi
I am working in Sweden temporary and have work permit. I will be work in Sweden up to Feb 2013.

I am Non EU citizen and I want my wife to come here and live with me.
Can any one help me How to start procedure for her resident work permit.
How much time will needed to get resident permit.
Which way should I apply for her visa so she get resident permit as soon as possible?

I have visited Sweden migration web site and also found suitable application for her that is "Co-applicant"
but when I started fill all details I found four options
1) AU pair
2) Visiting researcher
3) Professional athletes / coach
4) Other type work

I don’t know which option suits for this case
I have tried with other type work then they ask for corporate identification number and branch code

Can anyone suggest me which way visa process start so my wife can get visa as soon as possible

Because you have valid work permit your wife can apply for residence and work permit also as your family member
http://www.migrationsverket.se/info/518_en.html
But it takes now around 6-7 month for migration to make a decision.
Therefore it is better for your wife to aplly for long-term visa on base of family visit
http://www.migrationsverket.se/info/137_en.html , more information you will find on the web-site of Swedish embassy in the country where you wife will apply for a visa.
If you are planning to stay in Sweden only until February 2013 - long-term visa will be enough. If you are planning to extend your work permit, you wife should apply for both residence permit and long-term visa from your home country, this way she can be with your in Sweden on base of visa, while waiting for decision about residence permit.

I doubt You will get the permit based upon family member of someone with non-EU work permit. They will only grant those if the work permit is for greater than 6 months. Right now it is almost end of august, it is only 6 months to end of Feb 2013!
