Good to know about you.. How is life and work in Stockholm?

Hi! Am a Kenyan in origin but recently relocated to Göteborg and searching for new friends. A shout out if interested.

Hi my name is Jacqueline and my husband and I are looking to move to Sweden from the USA within the next five years and live on a residence permit until we can apply for citizenship.  We are not coming for a job, but a love of the country and its people. Right now,  my biggest concern is looking for someone or some way we can get everything laid out for us on the exact steps to take. Does anyone have any reccomendations about who to contact (like an immigration consultant or something) or what to do because we are incredibly new to this and want to make sure we do everything properly? I would really appreciate it!

Thank you ☺


Planning to move, or at least try out Sweden.

Heard a lot of good things about the place, but ultimately wanting to see where this thing might go with a certain...someone.

Thing is, coming from the PH is quite difficult in terms of socioeconomic challenges/limitations, and just the processes and agencies one has to deal with.

Would anyone be able to give me a lead on a good way to, maybe land a job or an au pair program of some sort?

Just need to make my way there first and foremost, then figure it out from there.

I'm 25, working as an instructional designer/English instructor at the moment. Lived in the UK when I was 3 until 15~

Hi I am Abdulla from Bahrain, looking forward to move to Sweden to achieve my Business and Technology goals.

Awesome, live in Sweden is very interesting as a Tourist but to actually stay in Sweden, you need to be prepared for the cold weather and hash winter. It can take you 1 year to learn Swedish and of course Sweden is a very welcoming country

Hey, I can actually help you out if want. I live in Stockholm

Hej!  I'm Oz from London, I just moved a couple of months ago and am now residing in Gothenburg with my partner !  Loving Sweden so far, hopefully pick up the language fast and live out my days :D


Just moved to Stockholm and I work as a Software Developer here. Enjoying things so far. Trying my best to thrown down with learning Swedish as I live here. Feel free to let me know if any cool events are going on around these parts

All the best

Good morning!

I am moving to Stockholm in January. I'd love any advise on finding a job before I move. I have experience as a nanny, waitress, and in fitness management. Any leads would be greatly appreciated. :)


Hi Elie

Nice to hear you are coming here. Where are you from?  Stockholm is a nice place but houses are expensive. A room in an apartment cost 4000kr per month and you will still have to pay one or two months guarantee. As for jobs, fitness management will be a good try otherwise you could try a step in job like school fritids ledare (school free time activities leader) or something like students assistance which is very easy to get a job with. After then which you may search for for your dream job. It will be a nice experience for you I hope :)

Are you looking for job only in your city?

Hej Hej!

My name is Katie, and I am a PhD Student at Chalmers, living in Gothenburg. I'm born and raised in Canada, and for the past 3.5 years lived in the USA (Houston and Ohio).

I will be here for approximately 4 years, and I am hoping to jump right into Swedish life. I know it will take some time to adjust, but I am very happy to be here.

I am always up for meeting expats and exploring the city.

Hello everyone!

My name is Izabela and I am a young, positive and talkative woman from Slovakia trying my luck in Sweden - Gothenburg. One can call it a "love migration", but honestly if the country would not be close to my hard from the start, I would never even consider this option.

I would love to work in administrative or human resources area which interests me the most and from which I already have previous experiences and university studies.

While adapting on life in new and different (and beautiful!) country and learning language I am trying to also build my network and meet as many people as possible to avoid any loneliness because, you know, winter is coming :)

Lets have some fika in the city!

I'm getting married to a sweedish girl. I'd like to know how will the immigration work once I'm married and decide to move to seeedan
