The Local _ Visas _ Self employed artist advice

Posted by: Woodyeft 18.Oct.2020, 10:55 AM

Hi there
I'm looking for some advice on emigration from the UK to sweden.

I'm looking to move myself, wife and 2 children to sweden around January 2022 to start a new life, brexit hasn't happened yet but unfortunately by then we will no longer be part of the EU, which makes emigrating a lot more complicated.

I'm a self employed tattoo artist of 15 and my wife is a self employed tattoo artist of 3 years.

As I understand it's a little more complicated for self employed people to move to sweden, I understand you need proof that you can support yourself and your family for 2 years (which we can do) but I'm a little confused and weather my situation is the same as a self emoyed person moving a business to sweden.

I have owned my own shop for 5 years but I will not be opening my own shop in sweden, I will be working in someone else's shop as a self employed artist and this will be arranged prior to applying for visas.
Does the same apply as a self employed person setting up a business In sweden? I'm quite confused as there doesn't seem to be a lot of information online about this subject.

If anyone could point me in the right direction or has any information on this matter that would be very much appreciated.

Thank you for your time.

Go visit now in winter for a couple of months and see if you feel the same way after about moving there.
