What a joy! After we found out on November 2nd that we had received the residence permit for 5 years on October 29th, 2021, we continued with the express train. After we had made the residence card and registered with the Skatteverket, we were already allowed to fish the personal number out of the mailbox on December 3rd. What luck! Now we can still do all the important things in the old year and then really get going in 2022.
