Overview

If your visa is approved the passport will be returned to you via Postnord services.

You may choose to have your passport and visa returned to your home address or collect it from the Post office (REK option).

Home Delivery is recommended option for most applicants and required for non-Swedish citizens.The shipment will be dropped into your mailbox. Please make sure your name shows up on the mailbox, should you go for this option.

You will be notified via e-mail and SMS as soon as the passport is ready for delivery.

If the shipment cannot be delivered at home you will receive a notification informing you that the passport is ready for pick-up from the nearest Post Office.

You must collect your passport within 14 calendar days. Post Nord will hold your passport for only 14 days, after which it will be returned to the Embassy/Consulate.

If you chose to collect your passport from the Post Office, you need to present a photo ID. If somebody else will pick-up the passport on your behalf, that person will have to submit a power of attorney to Post Nord five days before picking the passport up. The form can be found on the Post Nord website.

Please be sure to check this link for more information on the accepted form of identification.

Note: If you have urgent travel needs, you will have to mention that to the consular officer at the moment of the interview and have the passport picked up directly from the Consulate.

Change Delivery Options

You may change your preferred document delivery address online or through the call center until midnight before the day of your interview appointment. There is no cost to change your delivery preferences.

We strongly advise you not to change the pickup location after the time limit. Any changes to your desired pickup location after this time limit will lead to a delay in your passport delivery.

Check the Status of Your Visa

You can check the status of your application any time at this website: https://ceac.state.gov/CEACStatTracker/Status.aspx. Please wait at least three business days following your visa interview to check on the status of your application. The system may not have updated the status of your application prior to that time, and thus the message you receive may not reflect the actual status of your application.

Passport Tracking Options

For your convenience, you have several options to choose from to track the location of your passport.

If your status shows "origination scan", it means your passport has left the Embassy or Consulate is on its way to the delivery location you have chosen. It is however not available yet.

When the status shows "ready for pick up", it means that Posten Sweden is about to deliver your passport at the address indicated during the appointment scheduling process or, if a notification was left for you, your passport has been forwarded to the nearest Post Office and you can pick it up from there.

The Embassy or the Consulate cannot help you regarding the status of your passport delivery. Please do not contact the Embassy or Consulate regarding the status of your passport delivery.
