Hi,I come from India.I am going to study in Sweden for 2 years,am i eligible for Housing allowance?
One can always apply for benefits from Försäkringskassan. When we receive your application for housing allowance ( application number 5096 ), we can start working on your case to be able to determine if you are eligible for the benefit or not. If you would like to know more about housing allowance and check if you fulfill the requirements, you can find more information and the application here.
Please remember that we will be able to process your application for housing allowance only after you have been registered in Försäkringskassan. To be registered you would need to send us a separate registration application 5456. It is available in English here . If you come to Sweden from a country outside of EU, you will also need to have personal number or temporary personal number and a residence permit to be able to be registered in Försäkringskassan. For more information about personal number please contact Skatteverket . To be able to receive residence permit you would need to contact the Migration Board .
