Hej Hej… Before coming to Sweden, I have done a few search in google about the Apps and websites to use in Sweden. Among them, I found Study in Sweden has quite useful information for new comer.
In this post, I will also share about some other websites that play major role while I lives in Sweden.
Government related websites
Migrationsverket – Immigration site for Visa applications and information.
skatteverket – Taxation, Population registration, etc.
Transportstyrelsen – Transport Authority website which deals with Road safety, Traffic information, Driving Licence, Car, Railway, Shipping, Aviation, etc. I use it for Congestion charges of our family car, registering the purchased car and driving licence.
arbetsformedlingen – Swedish Public Employment Service website. This is the place where you can search all job adverts as well as other employment related services.
1177 – Health Authority website for all health related informations.
Polisen – Swedish police website.
Mecenat – Student discounts website. Normally you can apply for it once you have successfully enrolled to the program.
Ladok – Web portal for course registration and official transcript downloads. It is important to enrol there on time for each course.
Blocket – This Swedish website is for buying and selling second hand products. You can even search for house renting and cars.
Akademiskkvart – This site is used for searching private renting houses in Stockholm.

Parking Apps – It is quite unique the fact that even street parking spots of different locations within the Stockholm are being managed by several private companies. Hence variety of app. Among them, the most common ones we used are: Phone Park (Parking Partner), Parkster, Easy Park, MobilPark (Amino).
