Guide to form FSN 1226

Here we shed some light on which information to submit so that we can processs your application in the best possible way.

But before you start filling in the form, take a peek into our control issues regarding the remuneration rate.


swedish identity number

  • If you have a Swedish personal identity number or a Swedish coordination number, fill it in.
  • It is all good if you do not possess one yet. We will be happy if you state your date of birth instead.

day of arrival in sweden

  • If you are already here when you apply, fill in your date of entry.
  • If you are outside Sweden when you apply, fill in the date on which you expect to arrive here.

Estimated duration of stay in Sweden

  • One of the conditions for tax relief is that you do not intend to stay in Sweden for more than seven years. Please note that the application form has not yet been updated and incorrectly states five years.
  • Fill in how long you plan to stay here.

Has been a permanent or habitual resident (normally for six months) in Sweden at some time during the five years preceding the year in which the work commenced?

  • “Habitual resident” refers to someone who stays in Sweden for at least six months in a row.
  • If you have made short interruptions in a six-months stay here for visits abroad, your status as a ”habitual resident” in Sweden is not affected.
  • Nor is it affected if your stay here have covered a year-end.
  • Another case in point where you may be deemed as a “habitual resident” is if you have made regular visits to Sweden over a longer period, although each individual visit was shorter than six months.
  • If you have stayed in Sweden at some time over the relevant five-year period and feel unsure about the impact of your visit or visits, please attach a brief résumé of your visits (dates, duration, and frequency).
