Sweden postpones deadline for report on enhancements to immigration regulations until January 2024

On February 17, the Swedish Ministers for Migration and Employment announced that the deadline for a report on proposed enhancements to the Swedish immigration system has been postponed to January 31, 2024. Further, they announced that the committee is no longer tasked with assessing the current labor market testing process. The committee also suggested revised salary thresholds for third-country nationals who apply for work permits. Those who hold valid work permits when the new salary requirements eventually go into effect will be granted 12-month transition periods, during which they will remain subject to the previous salary thresholds.
