A father left his four-month-old baby on the reception counter at the Swedish Migration Board (Migrationsverket), leaving the building in protest over a misunderstanding regarding the child's residence permit.

The man entered the Växjö office of the Migration Board on June 15th in order to obtain a residence permit stamp so that his wife could travel with the baby on a visit to her sick mother, according to an incident report.

When a board official refused his request the man dumped the baby on the reception counter and left the building in protest, according to the report.

The official called for the help of her colleagues who managed to track down the man in the stairwell. An interpreter was called for and the situation was satisfactorily resolved, with the child provided with the required stamp.

The report states that the whole unfortunate incident was caused by a mix-up as a decision over the child's case had not yet been taken.
