The EU Intra-Corporate Transfer (‘ICT’) permit has been implemented in Sweden.  Eligible non-EU/EEA employees who are qualified managers, specialists and graduate trainees can work in Sweden as long as the company they are to work at is within the same group of companies as the sending company. 

Applicants who have worked at the sending entity for at least 3 continuous months will be suitable for the EU ICT permit, should the host company send them to a linked corporate entity. 

The EU ICT permit can be issued for an initial duration of up to 3 years for managers and specialists and up to 1 year for trainees. The applicant must receive a salary in line with an individual carrying out similar work in a similar industry.

Applicants must complete the paper application form (an online application form will soon be implemented) and as a third country national, they must submit the application from abroad.
