If you have the right of residence in Sweden via employment, education, being self-employed, or living on your pension or other adequate means to support your family with the Sweden family visa, your family may live and work in Sweden as long as you have the right of residence. It is not necessary for your family to apply for residence cards if they already have a residence permit or have applied for a residence permit within three months of their arrival in Sweden.
Who is considered a member of the family according to family visa Sweden?
>> The person who is your partner (cohabiting partner, spouse or registered partner)
>> Youngsters under the age of 21 who are related to you or your partner
>> Children above the age of 21 who are reliant on you for financial assistance if you or your spouse are the primary breadwinner
>> If your parents or your partner's parents are financially reliant on you.
>> Any other immediate family member who is financially reliant on you, lives in your home, or for whom you are directly responsible for the care due to a severe medical condition is considered a dependent family member.
One definition of cohabitation is two individuals who are continuously living together in a relationship and who share a common home. It is insufficient that you had lived together on a tourist stay, for example.
