Important information for your first salary payment

When it is time for your first salary payment, it is important that you have opened a Swedish bank account. Otherwise the payment will have to be made to your foreign bank account.

In order to open a Swedish bank account, you first need:

  • A Swedish social security number
  • A Swedish ID card

If you will not have time to set up a Swedish bank account before your first salary, we strongly recommend that you make sure to have an economical buffer to live off until the following monthly salary.
