A training period in Sweden for a U.S. citizen does not require a visa or residence permit provided the stay in Sweden is 90 days or shorter and there is no compensation from the host company to the trainee. A non-U.S. citizen may need a visa (depending on country of citizenship).
The objective of this placement is for the Trainee to gain knowledge, practical skills and experience in a Swedish work environment. The Trainee will also share his/her theoretical knowledge, experience and culture with the host company and its employees. Thus, the program encourages two-way learning which benefits both the Trainee and the host company. Such benefits contribute to greater understanding and enhanced trade & investment overall between our two countries.
