Hi Experts,

If one has to leave Sweden due to work permit rejection, can he/she apply for the blue card from home country without having to wait for that 'cooling period' ?

I'm afraid you'll have to explain your question better than that. What do you mean by "blue card"?

If you mean the European health insurance card, this is a card that you can apply for from the EU country in which you work and/or live. There is no "cooling period": if you work legally in Sweden, you can apply for the card from Försäkringskassan.

Since you mention that the work permit has been rejected, then I assume that you do not have the right to work in an EU-country. Is that correct? In that case you may not have a blue card.

All legal salaries in Sweden are reported to tax office.

They can do all kinds of stats (including average).

One could question if that 1.5 times national average means much in city like Stockholm. It is not much in reality.

Hi,

On 25 Jan 2019, Blue card eligibility salary limit has been increased to SEP 50550.

Any idea what could happen if we would have submitted application earlier i.e. before incresing the new Salary threshold ? Should we need to update Migartionsverket if submitted salary limit is less than current new threshold ? If we submit, migration board will revoke the decision or we just want to inform as a process to them , so that we will not have any problem during extension of same blue card ? Can you anyone please clarify this ?

Yes, your application will be rejected bc of your low wage.

In this case, if we send new letter with increased salary threshold to attach in the list of submitted documents. Would this be ok for Case officer to take positive decision ?

My work permit is due for extension in October and my salary level is above the 50k mark. Does this mean I can apply for this EU Blue card instead?
