Hi All,
new to Gothenburg and new to the forum. My search only yielded older threads, please forgive me if I overlooked something.

My question is: what are the current wait times for a personnummer from Skatteverket? My case is fairly simple: I'm an EU (German) citizen, with a permanent contract with a Swedish company. I went to Skatteverket and was done with the application within half an hour. They only copied my contract, passport and marriage certificate. The very nice agent then told me it "could be a few months". I'm starting work tomorrow, and I figure the HR department can tell me more, but I was wondering if anyone can chime in on the current wait times.

Thanks!

It looks like you are IN Sweden at the moment, under what kind of visa? Is it a Student visa? Or a Sambo visa?

You can only start work in Sweden when you have a work permit, and yes, that can take 3-6 months from application depending on which industry/area you are applying to.

waiting time can be few days to few years, depending on who will handle a case, pure luck, and you cant do much about it just cross your fingers, good luck

As someone from the EU you will only need a samordningsnummer. I don’t know why skatteverket or your employer didn’t tell you. Oh wait, it’s sweden, that’s why.

Didn’t you have this figured out before starting work the next day?

How do you expect to be paid?

Just go to SV as said above and chase it up.

You will get a proper personal number and certainly don't need a work permit.

I called Skatteverket and they said current wait times are six to eight weeks. Much better than six to eight months - although I believe it when I have the number...
My employer called as well, and Skatteverket will issue them a Samordningsnummer for me, however, that also takes a few weeks. So we'll see which one is faster. At least I got paid, so that's good.

I was in the same position as you in July (EU Citizen with a permanent job contract in Sweden). I, along with my family had person numbers about a week after applying. This was from an application made at Skatteverket on Rosenlundsgatan in Gothenburg. I don't know any of my friends who are EU citizens with a permanent job contract who waited more than 10 days for a person number, although this was in the summer. Maybe they have less work then..
