Do I need a visa for Sweden?
As a British citizen you don’t need a visa to enter Sweden. As a British passport holder, you can stay as a visitor for up to three months. If you intend to stay for a longer period, you should contact an office of the Migration Board.
Healthcare in Sweden
British citizens should have their free European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) or Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC), which can be used in Sweden. This will cover any necessary treatments you may receive at public healthcare centres or hospitals on your trip. However, it’s important to remember to still have travel insurance to be able to cover the costs of any unexpected medical treatment the EHIC/GHIC might not cover, including repatriation costs. You can find more information about healthcare in Sweden here.
If you have pre-existing medical conditions you must declare these before you buy your policy to ensure you’re fully covered.
