Hi Everyone,

I know this has already been asked but i cant find the original posts.

Basically, we are wanting to apply for our ID cards so we can set up bank accounts etc... but to pay for this we need to pay in advance online, how do we do this if we dont have a bank account? Can we pay over the phone to Skatteverket? Seems like a stupid system - you need an ID card to open a bank account but you need to pay with a bank account in order to get an ID card?

You do not need Personal numbers or Id cards to start a new bank account, if the bank you have gone to say you do then tell them you will go to one of their competitors. There are many banks/branches that will let you open accounts with passport as id.

If you have personal number and passport there is no problem to open a bank account.
FYI skatteverket ID car is just a population ID card not Swedish ID card.

For Swedish ID card you need to be citizen and apply at Police.

What you are referring (that Swedish citizens can get from the police) is called the "National ID card".
