In general

  • KTH Relocation may be in the office, and we may be working from home. Please contact us beforehand if you would like to book a meeting with us.
  • If you are uncertain about getting a residence permit in time, or being able to travel when you want to, it is better to hold off and contact us when your plans are more secure, and get an offer for housing when you know you will be arriving. This will cut down on costs for you. Please see below under "contract" if you have already received and accepted an offer from us.
  • KTH Relocation will be closed for the month of July, and we won't be having any move-ins during this period. If you have already booked an apartment through us, and arrive during July, you will be able to pick up your keys during set days and times. Please note that we will not be able to offer support during that month if you arrive then.

Keys and arrival

  • Please contact us a week before your arrival so we can arrange how you will get your keys. Please note that we may not be able to hand over keys at the last minute, since we are not always in the office.
  • Read through the Public Health Authority's website about arrivals into Sweden, isolating for 7 days and testing after 5 days. You can do the COVID-19 test at any health clinic (vårdcentral), but you will need to pay out-of-pocket for it.

  • Please note our two-month cancellation policy, and we can start/end contracts on the 1st and 15th of each month. For example, if you let us know by August 15, we can cancel your contract from October 15. We cannot change contracts due to delay or late arrival, or delay contract start-dates after you have accepted our offer.
