Do I need a visa?
If you wish to attend the Stockholm 2017 conference, you may need a visa if you are a citizen of a non-EU country.
A visa is a permit to travel to and stay in a country for a limited period. To be granted a visa, you need an invitation from conference organisation. You must show that you have enough money for your keep and for your home trip. You also need health insurance that covers the costs if you become ill during your visit to Sweden.
