Meet with Anna Eriksson, Counsellor at the Embassy of Sweden's Migration Section in Beijing, to learn about how to apply for business visas to Sweden and bona fide status for your company in an effective way.

Recent years, the amount of issued business visas at the Embassy of Sweden in Beijing has increased drastically. Progress has been made to simplify the application process, with for instance the implementation of a fast track for ADS travel agencies, the possibility for companies to obtain a Bona Fide status and new visa offices in China.

Any Swedish company with a subsidiary in China or a company with strong ties to Sweden whose employees often need to travel to Sweden can apply to acquire 'Bona Fide' status. The visa facilitations that the Bona Fide status entails will be available for employees of the company to expedite the process of Schengen visa. Click here to read more.
