Getting your Personnummer

As you'll soon discover, once you arrive to Sweden you'll need to get your own personnumer. You'll need this number in order to open a bank account and to be able to work here. It's very easy to get and it will take you like an hour of your life and 1-3 weeks of wait after that until you receive it at your home address (here in Uppsala). Remember to take your passport with you when you go there!

You can get it at the Swedish tax offices called Skatteverket and you can find one at this address:
