QUOTE (ssrdoc @ 7.Jul.2013, 02:19 PM) *
I have planned for years to move to Sweden but so far it was to hard to make it possible. Now it's a little easier.

My best friend lives in Stockholm for 10 years and the plan is that we will take a place together so it would be cheaper for us. Where can I search for a place to rent? Do you have to sign a contract for a year or can you rent a place for let's say three months? (I would stay that long if I am enable to find a job)

How hard is it to find any kind of work? I speak and write English very fluently and I have a truck driving license but there is a problem with getting some permit because of country asked for a two year wait to get some thing solved so I will not be able to search that kind of job for now. I would like to work anything (i.e. dishwasher) so I have enough money to live in Sweden and not spend to much of my own.

My plan for now: Get an apartment with my friend, find any job, spend as little money as possible until I get everything stable, get the residence permit and then my personummer and from there I hope it will be easier.

Errr... Your questions kind of imply that You haven't planned at-all! The questions are things your friend who has lived here for 10 years should be able to answer directly! rolleyes.gif

Ah Yorkie you are around, I thought you had maybe popped out to a pie chart convention as you never replied to my post on the Swedish health care thread, remember the one where you mocked me and poked fun at me and my cancer...maybe you couldn´t face up to just what kind of a man you really are?

There was nothing worth saying! looking for sympathy were you? As I said, I have no empathy unsure.gif .

Illness is all part of life, which is about filling in the time between birth and death. You choose to take out your frustration or anger, whatever, on hairdressers, doctors and probably others, that's your choice. Seen it before, no stranger to death since an early age so I accept my own mortality, even was besides a very close friend many years ago as She died of cancer. Today, your chances of survival are greater, Sweden has some of the best 5+year survival rates in Europe.

I'll be living in Sweden (self-employed freelancer) but wanted the convenience of local banking with a debit card (not credit card).

Once you register with the Tax Office to pay taxes on your income you will be given either a personal number or co-ordination number, and can then open a bank account.

I've also heard of, but can't get a decent understanding if I'm eligible, of student financing through Centrala Studiestödsnämnden, at least till I get a decent grip on Swedish and have proper chances at getting a job? Is this an option for Master's level students?

No, You are not eligible. And when you register your right to reside you must give a guarantee that you have own means to support yourself and your family. Under EU rules students are considered residents of their home country for the duration of study and not residents in the Member State they are studying in. Therefore you must also bring your EHIC cards and/or medical insurance to show that you are covered by your home country social system.

Perhaps that dangerous chemical that you are about to use only has instructions in handling in Swedish, Finnish, Norwegian and Danish (as is common up here). Perhaps Swedish is spoken by the majority of the population? Perhaps ...it has been covered many times here.

Afterwards, still chuckling, I went to have a coffee with a friend in a, let's say a "large government building" who, after she stopped laughing, told me that none the cleaners there speak English, let alone Swedish. They are all Russian.

And do you believe that they were legal workers? Many of the traditional cleaning companies no longer bid on public contracts since they know they will lose. EU Public Procurement rules means that the contracts must go to the lowest bidder, many of those are companies that further sub-contract -> sub-contract to other companies which employ or bring in illegals they pay at very low level, hence you will find that indeed many of the cleaners etc... working on contracts in public facilities do not speak Swedish and probably do not even have work permits etc... The public bodies are not allowed to check, they can only deal with the contract bidding company not place requirements on their sub-contractors ...this is how EU is runnning the race to the bottom to force the cost out of everything. It will be interesting however on the otherside, since now they realise it has resulted in people trafficking, unemployment etc... when later this year Sweden finally passes legislation with regards punishment of employers that employ illegals.

I'm not saying the Swedish prostitution law is doing good. But at least when they punish buyers, it's better than the alternative of punishing the sellers. It should be better to legalize prostitution like they have done in Netherlands. But unfortunately this is Sweden, that kind of thing just won't happen.

The Swedish law is not so much about punishment for the buyer, but rather the possibility, since prosecutions are public information, of name and shame for the buyer also. It is partly based upon a study that was done in the US that showed approx 80% of men that went to prostitutes said they would stop going if there was chance that their names and photos would be made public if caught.

The Netherlands is not a good example of legalised prostitution sad.gif most of the information we see in the media is about how it is wonderful and great for tourism ...but the reality is that since 2000 when it was legalised a large portion of the women that work in the tourist areas of Amsterdam (up to 90%) are sex slaves, beaten and raped on a daily basis (but the police ignore this) whilst the politicians continue to argue whether it is possible to determine if the women are working voluntarily or not! It has been found that many are part of the human trafficking rings from Eastern Europe and Asia where they have either been sold by their parents or tricked into believing they would get well paid jobs. Even members of the vice squad regularly request transfers to other departments because of the terrible situations they come across everyday, but cannot do anything about it. sad.gif

And Jorden for sure is not like UK or Sweden in terms of Monarchy and Law, if I remember correctly Jorden Monarchy select the legislator etc... it is not a democracy, therefore not the same. This gives ultimate power to the Monarchy to change the law and constitution as it likes the people are the subjects of the monarchy.

And as said, the only right internationally recognised with regards nationality is that everyone has the right to a nationality, however, there is no internationally agreed common process for determining nationality, it is left to each State to apply their own rules.

Its a woman problem which affect human rights and women rights and this is international affairs not swedish affair , just go to thread classification/category and use your mind a little bit

Just what RIGHT are you talking about here?

There is certainly no human right that a parent can give their nationality to their child. It is recognised even by the UN and all nations that the right to grant (deny or remove) nationality/citizenship belongs to individual states. Your citizenship is not something that you own, the status is given to you by the State, hence only they can pass it in so-to-speak. The only right that exists is documented in various conventions including the UN Human Rights, is the right to a nationality, in this respect it could be argued, rightly or wrongly, that the child could take the nationality of the Father.

Your issues seem to be more about equal rights for women, unfortunately this is something that is still being fought for in just about every part of the world, even Sweden isn't totally equal yet. For the women in Jorden, unfortunately they are living in a monarchy not a democracy, so public opinion has less say than that of the monarchy! And it is a nation in a part of the world that has yet to understand that men and women can be equal ...though maybe they have the right idea about not leting women drive wink.gif

Yes, that would be very odd indeed if Sweden passed a law that was sexually discriminatory as you describe! blink.gif

Prostetution is legal in Sweden, and so is going to a prostitute. What is illegal is payment (whether you pay or someone else pays for you), of any kind for sexual services, regardless of whether they are performed by a so-called prostitute or indeed your partner.

On the matter of your wife working, be aware that she will NOT be eligible for paid maternity leave unless she has worked for a minimum of nine months already and paid into the system. Which, if she is already a month gone and ya'll aren't here yet, is not going to happen.

The statemen abovet is incorrect, if entitled to welfare cover at-all (depends on personal number) then it will be at the lowest daily amount for parent leave.

However, the question you need to ask yourself is ...which employer would bother to employ a mother-to-be for a few months, have the trouble, time, cost and administration to arrange cover!, knowing that she will then be off on parental leave, possibly even earlier depending on how the pregnancy goes ...when She has a permit that is for 1 year, dependant upon your permit renewal, possibly 2 years. When there will more than likely be other candidates that they can employ?

Because I admit I have no idea how exactly Skatteverket thinks when it comes to this, I personally know students who were given personnummers and students who were denied and given coordination numbers instead, it's best you ask them directly, describing your situation.

When Skatteverket wish to be pendantic they use the legal rule of 1 calendar year, so even if your permit is 364 days with chance of renewal you can be refused to be entered into the population register, and therefore you will need to make sure you have medical insurance. It is a legal technique often used between skatteverket and Migrationsverket in order to prevent certain groups from registering into the population register. There are cases where people have been in Sweden for several years with permits, but each permit was issued with a day or two between expiration and start, and never longer than 12 months each ...so even though you may be here in total for 2 or more years, the reality is there can be a break in between that prevents any of the permit durations from reaching 12 months required for registration into the population register. Stuend permits are by default less than 12 months, since according to law Students are not supposed to be classed as residents in Sweden, but rather in their home countries.

Check your permit start and expiration date, and the start of the second year of your course! if there is a gap then be ready with travel insurance ...however, if you are going to pay income tax, then it is highly likely that you will be issued a personal number ...but that does not mean your wife will be!

...and remember you must also apply for permit for the child once it is born, even children need permits, and that also means you will need to show that you have means to support the child as well.

And as I said, and another poster ... contact Försäkringskassan if/once you get a personnummer. Follow it through, otherwise you might get a surprise that it isn't as stated on the web site info! ...a birth in Sweden will cost more than 40.000:- assuming it goes smoothly, they cannot give a price beforehand because the price charged is not fixed it is the actual price of the entire care.

SORRY FOR the MISTAKE in typing...If someone says that still u can buy house without resident visa (if you are non-EU), in ur absence, and without tax number...just wastage of time...This is true that sometimes you may not require tax-number, or bank account and visa (if you are EU citizen), but things don't work...let me explain you a bit:

In the majority of cases a number is not required for those things you list, however where they might be a co-ordination number will be requested specifically for that purpose. You do not need to be resident in Sweden or EU to purchase and own property in Sweden.

You got/are sick, doctors didn't pick it up immediately, could be down to not seeing such symptoms before,
could be a-typical symptoms, many reasons, and finally you came across a doctor that could help? Sh*t happens. However, in your version of reality anyone that doesn't do exactly what you want or think they should do is lazy and/or incompetent ...which you have not provided a shred of evidence that indicates such.

Sweden has one of the highest life expectancies in the World, it isn't just genetic, it comes down to many things not only primary and secondary healthcare, but also health education etc... quantity & speed of access to healthcare does not equate to quality. Mind You, it will be interesting to see if the figure reduces somewhat during the next few decades due to large immigrant population distorting the figures, or not.

Yes there are very many non-Swedish Citizens (saves arguments about immigrants wink.gif ) working for Migrationsverket. In fact you will find that they even have to deal with cases where there is old racial tensions, objections etc... However, whether you believe it or not, they are professional enough to do their job as they are supposed to.

As in most public authorities in Sweden where Swedish Citizenship is not a requirement, if you are looking for a job ... since there are internal objectives to employ immigrants, the current work-force is approx 80% female ... if you are Male, non-Swedish name ... but can speak Swedish, then your chances of being selected for a position are actually quite high. (really!)

would 1300kr a month be enough to live on in Sweden after having paid Rent, Elect etc.?

What is the etc... ?

Socialstyrelsen state that for 2013 the amount of money a single person needs to live on, ie. the minimum before welfare benefits come into play, excluding rent is 2950:-/m

You are well below that, if indeed it is 1300 or 1400 after rent?

If you are an EU Citizen (?) then you do not meet the requirement for Right of Residence, since having less than 2950:-/m excluding rent places you in the zone where you technically are classed as a burden to the welfare state. Whilst you cannot be deported purely on monetary grounds when it is checked later for permanent right of residency and/or citizenship it will be viewed that you have not been in Sweden meeting the requirements for Right of Residence.

It is possible to have work permits for a period longer than 4 years. If it is unclear that you have stayed in Sweden working for the entire duration of the work permit a new one will be issued rather than PUT. And there is another little trick that is used by MV when they want to extend UT type permits which is to space 1 day between the expiration and start dates of permits, this way the permit time is not continuous.

Since you bought it over the net, then consumer law (EU and Swedish) gives you 14 days change-of-mind, absolutely no questions asked. You can just have it returned. Of-course you have to pay for the return though.

... but during visa process he should not leave the country.

Nobody is stopping your boyfriend from leaving the country, it is only advised that he might have difficulty coming back into the country. This is because airlines should not allow passengers travel to destination where they do not have permission to enter. He can travel out of the country though.

Under exactly what legal grounds do you expect a lawyer to request the permit process speeding up? It would just be a waste of money, even if there was one that would claim to be able to help! The best option is to have the employer contact MV in a very urgent and polite manner, asking if is possible to speed up the processing in order to help their business and your boyfriend travel. Any legal interference with no grounds might just result in a slower process!

There is no such thing as applying for permanent residency when on a work permit, it is decided by MV case officer at the time of processing an extension. Under normal circumstances, when there is no reason for doubt about the work and settlement surrounding the applicant, then the case officer will grant a permanent residency when you apply for an extension after 4 years on work permit. If there is still any doubt eg. continually changing jobs to dodgy employers, or not informing MV when changing jobs if you were supposed to etc... then they will just issue yet another extension to the work permit.

One possibility often overlooked, did you pay by credit card for the mower? If so, then contact the credit card company and explain to them that you didnt receive the working goods that you ordered and by for and would like the transaction reversing or the goods replaced and if they could help you since the shop is being difficult. They react faster if it was a real credit card (not the type that direct debits your bank) since in theory they own the product until you pay the bill and it is under their responsibility to make sure you get a working product.

Alternatively, under consumer law (EU consumer Law) for the 1st 6 months you can return the product for replacement or fixing, and the store has the burden of proof that you damaged it rather than it being faulty when bought. After 6 months the burden of proof switches to You.
