What are the requirements to get a residence permit based on employment? More than 19 000 residence permits where granted in 2013 due to employment. The two main requirements for obtaining a residence permit based on employment are:
- a job offer from a Swedish employer.
- a monthly salary of no less than 13 000 SEK/month before tax.
When you apply, it is important to attach a proof of the job offer to your application.
