I am an legal immigrant to Sweden from the US. I've been living here for the required 3 years (married to a Swede, as grounds for immigration), and am poised to submit my citizenship application.

Have you personally successfully done this? I am seeking someone who has, as I have questions regarding things like Svenska language skills testing / requirements. I am slightly conversant in Svenska language, but not great.

Am interested to know of your experience please. Thanks in advance, Dave M.

There is no language requirement, no test. Just one form two pages. Focus is on time spent, supporting yourself and having no criminal records unpaid bad debts.

Thank you axiom for replying, that's good information. Not knowing your circumstances or when you applied... I'm wondering (1) for how long did Migrationsverket retain your original passport before returning, and (2) how long did their application review process take in total? Thanks again in advance, D. Morton
