Hello !
This is kind of frustrating ,i have been trying to submit my citizenship application online since that is the fastest way of getting approved quicker than post application ,now i have tried several times to make payment with my visa card but i kept getting Error message after the card verification process ,i have submitted all required documents and filled forms and it states that my application is approved but can't be processed since i haven't paid , which i totally understand.

My problem is ,my card seem to be working fine ,when i use it to pay for other stuff online and offline but not on Migrationsverkets site.
I am wondering if anyone have ever encountered similar problem and how it was resolve without the online application being rejected though to lack of payment ?

I just worry that if i send the application by post alone , that the process for approval will take longer time ,which they states on there website also. i don't have bank account with the banks ,they are asking me to login and pay through .Is it possible to ask someone else to use there credit card and pay for me and i refund them the cost or must it only be my card ?

Thanks in Advance,

Just a thought here - could it be you are using a credit card that is non-Swedish? There are many companies, for example, that have the condition that a CC must be on a Swedish bank, although the same company will accept a foreign card over the counter. It seems to be a 'personal' thing.

Nice to know it got sorted, even if by a somewhat roundabout route. Bit of a mystery, though, as to why it was denied. Hopefully it will not be the case in the future. smile.gif
