I'm wondering if it is possible if I can move back to Sweden. My mother lives there and I am currently 17. What steps would I have to take in order to move back?

As in are there certain steps I have to take to move. Do I have to contact anyone or can I just get a ticket and leave?

Read the threads on this forum concerning those moving to Sweden, and/or browse the Migrationsverket and Skatteverket web sites. If you have not lived in Sweden you will have many of the same problems getting established. Getting a PN, folkbokföring, personbevis etc. Thats all got from contacting Skatteverket once in Sweden, you can essentially bypass Migrationsverket, since you have a right to be in Sweden. I assume you already have a PN, I should have said. All Swedish citizens have them, and you keep the same one for life, even if you leave Sweden and return. You might need to find what that is though if you do not know already.

I was born in Sweden and lived there for 8 years. I don't know if my age affects the steps to move there. Where can I find the threads because I'm sort of new to this. Thanks

You can certainly move back, you are a Swedish citizen. Things to think about: Do you speak Swedish, have any special job skills, have some money saved up until you can get on your feet?

This guy reminds me of the old expresion, "you can lead a horse to water but you cannot make him drink". I ran out of patience last night when the only response left was - You buy a one way plane ticket, then find somewhere to live. But then he would have asked, how do I do that. As Zebedee used to say "Time for bed".

Important points that went unanswered - do you speak good Swedish - are you moving to live with or near your mother for adult support - have you friends in Sweden - have you any funds - do you intend to study or work. If he wants to come back with this information, there might be some points to fill in. But otherwise. How self sufficient is a guy of 17?

I lost confidence in him when he wanted to know how to find threads on this forum. Handholding can only go so far.

No matter what his age - and at 17 he should be pretty well organised even so - I found it odd that he 'had to come onto a forum in English' to get this info. Has he no Swedish family, friends etc who would have given him all the data - in Swedish??

It doesn't add up. Bit like trolling - - -

Ease up, he might not have told anyone he wants to come back and might just be making preliminary enquiries.

Answer to the OP: If you are a Swedish citizen you can just jump on a plane and come here whenever you like. You might want to think about things like what you are going to do, you've been away for 9 years and haven't been educated under the Swedish system, even if you speak fluent perfect Swedish (which I'm assuming you do if you lived here the first 8 years of your life), you will need to study to bring your reading and writing up to the same level as your English and so that you can get a job or go to university or whatever you want to do.

Good luck!
