  • Hello Thaskeent,

    If you move to Sweden from a non-EU country with a child who is older than 1, but has not yet turned 2, you can get 200 days of parental benefit.

    If there are two parents who are eligible for parental benefit will both of the parents get 100 days each.

    Best regards,
    Ida

  • Hello Thaskeent,

    Thank you for your post. As my colleague Ida has stated above, if you move to Sweden before the child turns 2, the parental leave days shall be 200 in total for the child. This means, the parents get 100 days each, since the days are shared between them.


    Kind regards,
