During my stay in Lund

Residence Permit

If you are a citizen of a country outside the EU, you require a residence permit (Swedish: uppehållstillstånd) to study at a Swedish university for a period longer than three months. You cannot enter Sweden until the permit has been granted.

If you are an EU citizen, you don't need to apply for a residence permit.

Exchange students that are not eligible for Swedish Personal Identity Number (Swedish: personnummer) but would like to work and pay taxes in Sweden can get a co-ordination number (Swedish: samordningsnummer) from the Swedish Tax Agency (Swedish: Skatteverket).
