Can I travel from Sweden with a temporary residence permit?
Hello!Can I go back to my homeland for a visit when I have only one year residency. I'm from syria.
Thank you for turning to Lawline with your question.
When you have a temporary residence permit you can travel from Sweden as long as your residence permit is valid (2 kap. 4 § in UtlL). This means that you can visit Syria within your one year residency. However, in order to travel you need a valid passport (2 kap 1 § UtlL) and a a residence permit card as proof of your residence permit. When you travel you must be able to show the card together with a valid passport. If you do not have a valid passport, the Swedish Migration Agency can issue an alien's passport in certain cases (2 kap. 1 a § UtlL). I advise you to visit www.migrationsverket.se for further information regarding this.
I hope you received the answer you were looking for.
I wish you a pleasant day,Ellen Hägerström
