We maintain and develop relations between the UK and Sweden. The British Embassy in Stockholm provides services to British nationals living in and visiting Sweden.

Our work covers a range of issues including political and economics.

We continue to work closely with Sweden to secure growth and reform in the European Union and to take forward our shared foreign policy interests around the world. We work to help UK companies export to Sweden and encouraging Swedes to invest in the UK.

You can access UK government services while in Sweden.
