Sweden Travel Planning & Travel Tips

American travelers visiting or living in Sweden should register with the local U.S. Embassy. The embassy can provide valuable information for traveling and living in Sweden.

Embassy contact information:

The U.S. embassy is located at Dag Hammarskjölds Vag 31 in Stockholm. The telephone number is 08 783 53 00 and the fax is 08 661 19 64. For specific passport requests, the Consulate's fax number is 08 660 58 79. Alternatively, the embassy can be contacted via email at stkacsinfo@state.gov. Travelers can get more detailed information at se.usembassy.gov/embassy/.


The period of June-August is the best time to visit Sweden. In some of the northern regions of Sweden, the sun will not actually set during the summer, but it will likely stay up till as late as 11 pm even in the southern areas. The northern areas are popular in the summer, although travelers say that spring in Sweden is also a great time to visit. November to March is Sweden's coldest period, but the weather allows travelers to partake in winter sports.

Calling Internationally:

Dial the international calling number (011 from the US), then the country code (46 for Sweden), then the phone number.


The electric current in Sweden is 230 volts.
