Hej tongue.gif

I am going to be working as a full-time intern over the summer and part-time in the autumn for an engineering firm, but I do not have a personnummer. I have a temporary one but do not have European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). I am a European Citizen but due to technicalities I cannot get the EHIC (yet). I am a full-time student during the rest of the year, but now that I am working, I would like to get the real personnummer.

Does anyone perhaps know if I qualify for European Health Insurance now with a job? Where should I go first? The Skatteverket or the Migrationsverket? Maybe Arbetsförmedlingen can help?

My thoughts are to go to Migrationsverket to apply for residence. Then after I get the residence, go to Skatteverket to get Personnummer. Perhaps there is a speedy process for people who have work? Then how would I get the EHIC?

Thank you for the help

Go to Skatteverket with your job contract and ask for personnummer.
For EHIC you should register at Försäkringskassan but get personnummer first.

Thank you kokoko. I will do that tomorrow then. Skatteverket does need a residence permit (right of residence for EU citizens) from Migrationsverket for the personnummer?

The Försäkringskassan also does not need the same?

Skatteverket does ask for a residence permit, but you can call and ask them to make sure. Their number is 0771- 567 567

if you study or work and your are from EU you have nothing to do with the Migration office since 1 of May
you go to Skatteverket with your work contract and ask for a personal number and for added importance you bring your admission letter to show you will work and study for more then a year.
With a work contract they will not ask your for a eu health card since you will work here your supposed to insured in sweden. If you just go with the study paper they will require some health insurance proof.
Arbetformedlingen is useless since your are from EU as well as Migration Office.

I Think you'll only get a personnummer if your contract is > 1 year
