The Swedish Migration Agency plans to facilitate short term intra-EU mobility under the EU Intra-company Transferee Directive 2014/66 (EU ICT permit) from 1st March 2018. An online application procedure will also be introduced.
The EU ICT permit will allow non-EU/EEA individuals who are qualified managers, specialists and graduate trainees to work in Sweden or any of the EU countries implementing the directive on a temporary basis. The applicant will be allowed to stay for up to 90 days in a 180 day period, without the need to apply for a separate work permit. The applicant can rely on this directive as long as the company they are to work for is within the same group of companies as the sending company (in certain circumstances the Swedish Migration Agency may require a notification from the applicant upon arrival).
