Hello everyone,

I've read on Skatteverket webpage to change your name/family name you have to fill out the namnsändring form and send it to Skatteverket in Malmö.
I wondered if any of you has done it and how long the process will take?

depends why you want to change it, it's not as simple to change here as in other countries and you will only apply to Skatterverket if it's a name you have a connection to i.e. spouse's name, your own previous name or your parents' name, otherwise you apply to PRV.
