If you are moving to Sweden from abroad and are
planning to live in Sweden for one year or more, you are generally
required to be registered in the Swedish Population Register. When
you have been registered you will be given a Swedish personal
identity number and be registered as living in a building with
an address. More information is found on the Swedish Tax Agency home page.
Temporary personal identity number
If you are not registered in the Swedish Population Register
when admitted to studies, you will automatically be given a
temporary identity in the admissions
system and in the study documentation system (Ladok). The
studies you start and complete will be registered in Ladok under
your temporary identity.
Applying for a change from temporary identity to
Swedish personal identity number (personnummer) at Umeå
If you later on get registered in the Swedish Population Register,
you must apply for a change from your temporary identity to the
Swedish personal identity number in order to get your completed
studies correctly registered in Ladok. Fill in this form and send
it by internal mail to Student Services/Student Records Office, or
hand it in to Infocenter.
