Moving to Sweden from the UK with Reloux International Moving Service

Removals to Sweden from the UK  

Moving to a new country is always an exciting yet challenging experience, especially when relocating with your family. Sweden, known for its high standard of living, excellent public services, and beautiful natural landscapes, is an attractive destination for many expatriates. If you are planning a move from the UK to Sweden, Reloux® International Moving Service can help make the process smooth and hassle-free. Here’s a comprehensive guide to assist you in your journey to Sweden.

Why Move to Sweden?

Sweden is renowned for its high quality of life, comprehensive social welfare system, and a strong emphasis on work-life balance. It offers a safe, clean, and environmentally conscious living environment, making it a great place for families. The country is also known for its excellent education system, universal healthcare, and progressive society. Additionally, Sweden’s cities, such as Stockholm, Gothenburg, and Malmö, are culturally vibrant and provide numerous opportunities for personal and professional growth.



Planning Your Move

1. Research and Preparation:

•    Cost of Living: Sweden has a relatively high cost of living compared to the UK. It’s important to budget for housing, transportation, groceries, and other daily expenses. Major cities like Stockholm can be more expensive, so planning your finances accordingly is crucial.

•    Employment Opportunities: If you are moving for work, ensure your job is secured before relocating. Sweden’s job market is competitive, and proficiency in Swedish can be an advantage, though many companies operate in English.

•    Housing: Research housing options early. Housing can be expensive and competitive, especially in urban areas. Consider temporary accommodation initially, allowing you time to find a permanent home.

2. Visa and Residency:

•    Post-Brexit, UK citizens need to apply for a visa or residence permit to live and work in Sweden. This process can take time, so start early and ensure all documentation is in order. The Swedish Migration Agency website provides detailed information on the types of permits available.

3. Healthcare:

•    Sweden offers excellent healthcare services. Upon receiving your residence permit, register with the Swedish Tax Agency (Skatteverket) to obtain a personal identification number (personnummer), which allows you to access public healthcare.

4. Education:

•    If you have children, research and apply to schools in advance. Sweden offers both public and international schools, and the education system is known for its quality.
