7 Interesting Things You Need to Know Before Moving to Sweden

by Nancy Jemes Blogger
Sweden is a wonderful place to live with its excellent public service and corporate culture that inspire people to have a good work-life balance.

But, along with these there are some other important things that people need to know before they book services for removals to Sweden and this kind of knowledge will definitely make your move smoother:

  1. Environmentally Conscious
    Swedes are world leader when it comes to recycling and less than one percent of Sweden’s household waste ends up in the rubbish bin. They recycle everything in different ways. So, the Swedish people drinking the water from the tap are the norm. The water of Sweden is clean and fresh and the people save money and help protect the environment from plastic bottles.

  2. Dress Sense
    Swedes have a sensible and practical approach to clothes and even when they dress up, they don’t dress up too much. They prefer to keep it casual and even at work; the office dress code is strictly low key and there’s not much difference between parties dress than other time’s dress.

  3. Language
    The main language of Sweden is Swedish but most people speak English as the second main language. So, it’s great if you‘re not much of a linguist and if you’re stuck then you can return into English.

  4. Coffee
    In the World, very few countries drink as much coffee as Sweden and Swedes are one of the highest consumers of coffee in the World. In Sweden, coffee drinking comes from a tradition known as Fika and it is seen as an opportunity to relax and bond with people.

  5. Get in Line
    In Sweden, from the tax office and pharmacy to the local grocery store’s counter, you’ll be required to exercise patience as you wait to be served in a member queue. Usually, many places have a ticketing system and once you grab your ticket, you’ll have to wait until your number shows up on the screen.

  6. Be on Time
    Swedish people respect punctuality, whether they are going to an interview or a friendly Fika. They’ll start the meeting on time with or without you. In the other way, you can say Swedes value timekeeping.

  7. Swedish Work Permit
    In Sweden, people coming for employment need to obtain a work permit first and the work permit has to be placed in your passport before arrival in Sweden. For this, you can submit your application to you your nearest embassy, because it takes a month for processing time. In case if your work permit’s application is being processed then you’re not allowed to travel to Sweden.

These are some important things that you need to know before moving to Sweden and these things also help you to know about the Swedish people and their culture. Apart from this, for your move process, do consult a professional service provider for removals to Sweden.
