Procedure when moving outside EU for short duration

Hi,

We are Indian nationals and we have registered for forsakringskassan.
We are receiving monthly child care and parental benefits.

However, we are leaving to India and plan is to come back in 6-7 weeks time.
We haven't planned any parental in these days.

Do we need to deregister with forsakringskassan now and register again in this case?

Regards,
Rama

  • Hello!

    The general rule is that if a person lives in Sweden and then goes abroad, that person is still considered living in Sweden if their stay abroad does not exceed period of 1 year. That means that if you go abroad for period of 6-7 weeks (shorter than 1 year) you do not need to deregister from Försärkingskassan.

    Please be advised that if a person starts employment abroad that rule does not apply. In those cases one has to inform Försäkringskassan about the situation as soon as possible because one should generally be covered by social insurance in the country where they are employed.

  • OK, Thank you!

    In this case I am moving out on employement for 6-7 weeks and shall be back again. So as I understand I have to inform Försäkringskassan in this case.

    Is there any form available to fill and submit in this case.

  • Hello!

    You have to inform Försäkringskassan about your stay abroad if you leave Sweden to spend time abroad for 6-7 weeks and during that time:

    • you will be employed by a foreign employer to work abroad (outside of Sweden),

    • you will receive salary from that foreign employer,

    • you will pay tax in another country (not Sweden),

    • you still have your employment in Sweden and you perform work abroad for your Swedish employer.

    In that case you have to inform us about your stay in India by sending application 5459. The application is available here .

    You do NOT have to inform Försäkringskassan about your stay abroad if you leave Sweden to spend time abroad for 6-7 weeks and during that time:

    • you still have your employment in Sweden,

    • you do not start working in another country (outside of Sweden),

    • you come back to Sweden after those 6-7 weeks.

    Best regards,
