Brexit

We’ve compiled a list of links to information about Brexit to help British nationals check what they need to do, whether they are currently living in Sweden or thinking about moving here from the UK. As everyone’s personal circumstances are different, we have chosen to give links to the original sources so that you can make an informed decision based on up to date information. Where the Swedish version of a web page has more information, or more up to date information than the British page, we’ve shown the Swedish version.
