Hej,

I need some information about permanent residence for EU citizen in Sweden that You can get permanent right in Sweden without having had five years of continuous residence if you have worked and resided in Sweden for three years, working in another EEA country, but still staying in Sweden and commute back to your place of residence at least once a week.

Looking forward to hear your quick and accurate response.

If you spend at least one night every week in your Swedish home, then you are a Swedish resident as far as the tax authority is concerned. But what is your exact question?

No. If you have used the EU Right of Residence to reside in Sweden, then under EU rules it takes 5 years before it becomes a Permanent Right of Residence (PUR).

If You registered your Right of Residence here in Sweden in 2009 then you will automatically have Permanent Right of Residence FEM, FIVE, 5 years after the date of registration = earliest in 2014. It is 5 years, not 3 ...there is nothing to apply for, it is done automatically. If You did not register your right of residence in Sweden, then you will not be given Permanent.

Simple ... 5 not 3.
