Swedish Population Register
If you have moved to Sweden from abroad and are planning to live here for more than 3 months you should normally be registered in the Swedish Population Register. To be registered in the Swedish Population Register means that you have a personal identity number and that you are registered as living at a certain address and property. To be registered you must apply in person to the Swedish Tax Agency.
