US citizen Icelandic partner in Sweden by cassth91 in TillSverige

[–]Etaro 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The planning to marry or cohabit visa is usually referred to as the Sambo visa in expat circles. Sambo being the Swedish word for unmarried partners living together. Should help if you wanna search for more info online. There is also a great Facebook group called Americans in Sweden that is very active and helpful.

To your question, I have personally gone through the process of having my American partner move here through that same visa process. I also know a couple of people who are from other EU countries that have had American partners move here to live with them. I am not sure if you partner being Icelandic will change anything, as they are part of Schengen but not EU.

Assuming it doesn't, it's very straight forward. You fill in a form online. Your partner then gets an email to fill out a similar form. You go to an interview at a Swedish embassy and answer some basic questions, basically the same ones you answered in the form. All this to establish that the relationship is legit. As long as it is you have nothing to worry about. After this you have have to wait.

The problem as I see is that I don't think you can apply u til your bf actually lives here, since he is not Swedish. And you can't enter during the processing of your visa. I'd suggest thow migrationsverket an email regarding your situation. They have been very helpful every time I've had any questions. Maybe there is a way you can move with him on an extended visitor's visa and then apply for the sambo visa from within Sweden.

working holiday - enterance ticket needed? by cashewskateboards in TillSverige

[–]Etaro 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can't seem to find the expected application time for that visa on the homepage. After googling it appears to be fairly fast, 1-3 months. Either apply well in advance, or throw them an email and they'll be able to give you recommendations and average waiting times. https://www.migrationsverket.se/English/Contact-us/Email-us.html

I'm sure you know, but make sure you fulfill all the requirements before you apply. If they have to request additional I formation from you it might seriously slow down the time it takes for approval. https://www.migrationsverket.se/English/Private-individuals/Working-in-Sweden/Employed/Special-rules-for-certain-occupations-and-citizens-of-certain-countries/Working-holiday-visa-for-young-people.html

Are you looking for people to practice Swedish with? Are you looking for recommendations for learning resources? by Coedwig in Svenska

[–]Etaro 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Probably discord or a Swedish speaking community of some kind. Start interacting. You'll be forced to read Swedish, and write it to the best of your ability. You can get help/corrected instantly and can ask questions. I feel people tend to try that too early. You need enough of a base knowledge to start taking advantage of that, and people try to take shortcuts when it comes to the boring part of simply learning vocab and grammar. If you learned Swedish til high school that should be in there somewhere already. You'll need to put in the hours to refresh it! =)

How do you keep health insurance? by treedogcar in TillSverige

[–]Etaro 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Like someone else said most home insurances includes a travel insurance that covers emergency healthcare and dental when abroad. Many have an option to add a more extensive travel coverage that also pays out in case of missed flights, lost luggage, or if you have to cancel a trip due to illness and stuff like that. From what I've seen they seem to cover trips up to 45 days. If you are gonna stay longer than that you'd have to get an actual standalone travel insurance. I'm sure any of the well established insurance companies here can help you with that.

For collage, meaning staying primarily in the US for years I'd assume you get an American insurance for the duration?

Any tips on fixing a ripped sail? by SimplyJames in sailing

[–]Etaro 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Like stated in another comment a sailmaker might very well be able to fix it up for you, depending on how far into the sail the sun damage has reached. If it's no more than a foot or so (for example if you keep it furled out in the sun) it's fairly cheap to re-cut the leech and remove the damaged cloth. It will leave you with slightly smaller sail area, but with a functioning sail that can last for a long time if you take care of it.

As a side note, taking your sail down when not using it, or using a cover for it if you keep it furled on the boat is the best investment you can make to make a sail last longer. If you get a new one don't let the sun kill it way before its time! =)

Sweddits meta-snack och en liten regeluppdatering. by Coffeh in sweden

[–]Etaro 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Inte mitt ansvar längre Hahaha.

Nej men jag personligen har alltid varit emot politikförbud, så länge vi har stenhårda regler för soapboxing. Men ett alternativ jag alltid gillat är politik bara i self posts. Länk + diskutionsunderlag. Då blir det lättare att modda soapboxing också. Kommer synas i diskussionsunderlaget.

Hej på er. Hopaps allt går bra!

Några planer på tillfälliga regler angående politik när valrörelsen drar igång på allvar?

När de snackade om det i studio ett häromdagen pratades det om "lyxrenoveringar", i negativ bemärkelse. Så antar att de investerat i fastigheterna och nu säljer med vinst?

What? The joke is that Americans keep mixing together Sweden and Switzerland. It happens time and time again.

Helt rätt. Min version är minus skinka, plus kycking och/eller bacon. Men Curry + ananas + banan + jordnötter är fan oslagbart.

Cambridge Analytica whistleblower reveals shocking claim his predecessor was poisoned and police bribed by HonestSummer in worldnews

[–]Etaro 6 points7 points  (0 children)

My intention is not at all to underplay Trumps destructive power. In fact, the comparison in itself is kinda dumb. The only relevant parallel is really that both countries are in a shitty situation due to uniformed and/or bigoted voters.

Difference is any political change can theoretically be undone with the stroke of pen after the next election. If the UK leaves the EU not only are their special treatment gone forever, but to rejoin in the future they need a yes vote from every single member state.

Jag grät och skrattade på ICA idag. by TheUnum in sweden

[–]Etaro 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Bleh. =(

Satt häromdagen och funderade på om jag skulle fylla på mitt busskort och käka nudlar/rostbröd till på fredag, eller gå från och till jobbet (tar runt en timme i varje riktning) resten av veckan och köpa lite mer käk. Barn finns inte ens på kartan. Också självförvållat antar jag dock.

Justitieministern: ”Vi måste sätta större press på nätjättarna” by swetrader in sweden

[–]Etaro 45 points46 points  (0 children)

"Men nazism är ingen åsikt. Det är ett brott mot mänskligheten"

Övertygande argument. "jag tycker vi ska döda alla barn för att förhindra överpopulation!"

"Men nazism är ingen åsikt. Det är ett brott mot mänskligheten"

???

Det är per difinition en åsikt. En jävligt skitig åsikt som förtjänar kritik och förlöjligade, men fortfarande en åsikt. Att förbjuda en åsikt med motiveringen att det inte är en åsikt känns lite svajigt.

You realize all the large European and Asian car companies produces their cars in the US for the American market? Just like Ford produces their European cars in Germany. Cars are expensive to ship.
