Vinge authorised by the Swedish Migration Board

November 06, 2014

The authorisation entails that Vinge can assist both the employer and employer to expedite and simplify the application procedure relating to the grant of a work permit. In light of the Migration Board’s rather protracted lead times, it constitutes a significant advantage for many employers to know when the work permit will be issued so that the employee concerned can start work.

In 2014, the Migration Board granted Vinge a special authorisation which reduces the lead times for employer applications for the issuance of work permits for their employees.

The major advantage of the authorisation is that once a complete application has been submitted to the Migration Board, a decision may be rendered in respect thereof within as short a period as one week.

Vinge’s employment and benefits practice group is well acquainted with the regulatory framework governing work permits and the specific requirements relating to, e.g. insurance which the Migration Board may impose as a condition for the grant of a work permit.
