Dear Readers,

I am a Swedish citizen and I would like to bring my spouse to Sweden. I would like to know how long it takes for migrationseverket to process the application and make a decision. Also would she get a PU after 2 years, or it takes longer?

thanks much in advance

Have you checked the forum for old threads on this topic? This topic has been covered many times.
Also suggest check Migrationsverket's website, and return with more specific questions if you don't find answer there or in the forum archive.
You will need to provide more specific details about your situation for anyone on the forum to give you any useful advice.

Thanks for the reply.

I checked other threads and the migrationsverkets website as well.

One specific question I have is, while waiting for migrationsverket's decision for residency permit, is it possible to obtain a tourist visa for my wife from Sweden or other Schengen country for that matter, just for visiting Europe?

She can visit anywhere in Europe except Sweden. Once you get the decision, you can bring her in the country from anywhere. Has she already had the interview in her home country (or wherever she designated as the closest Embassy)? If she has, the decision typically seems to come pretty quickly, so a call to Migrationsverket couldn't hurt.

Good luck!
