The number of work permits granted in Sweden every year for Indians are the highest. Spouses also get work permits automatically. Most common jobs being the system analysts or programmers with the latest skill-set or technologies and Indian consultants usually score high on performance and customer satisfaction.
Apart from USA, Indians engineers in Sweden also form a substantial chunk of Sweden’s technology industry.
According to sources, India is dominating work migration to Sweden from outside of the EU. However, there aren’t any special facilities or incentives offered to Indians in particular.
People from India get attracted to Sweden or Stockholm in particular due to its strong engineering heritage, stable and transparent institutions and some great universities.
Taking all these factors into account, Indo-Sweden recruitment has become very strong these days. Many new companies it consultancies have come up with offices in Sweden and different parts of EU.”
