Sweden intends to encourage the immigration of highly skilled people while tightening restrictions on low-skilled employment.

These suggestions were made in the report on new labour immigration regulations.

Sweden need low-skilled labour as well, despite the lack of highly and trained professionals. The Ministry of Migration claims that many of these low-skilled jobs, though, might be filled by Swedish citizens already residing in the country.

Authorities also pointed out that widespread problems exist with the regulatory structure being abused, especially in low-skilled occupations.

The research recommends, among other things, that the salary be at the median level in order to be eligible for a work visa in Sweden. It does not, however, rule out the possibility of creating exceptions for particular professions.

The report also proposes the abolishment of the so-called track change system. This implies removing the possibility of applying for a residence permit for work and a work permit from within the country after a final rejection decision on the asylum application.

Furthermore, the report recommends authorities should be able to exclude certain occupations from the possibility of obtaining a work permit.

Commenting on these proposals, the Swedish Minister of Migration, Maria Malmer Stenergard, said Sweden must be attractive for highly skilled workers.

This report proposes that the legislative changes should enter into force on June 1, 2025.

These proposals follow the country’s need for qualified workers in several sectors. According to Swedish authorities, the employment rate in the country decreased, while unemployment rose to 8.0 per cent, and it is expected to increase further in the coming years.

This implies that the Swedish labour market needed more qualified workers to fill out vacancies in various sectors within the country.

Referring to the shortage of skilled workers, the Swedish Minister of Employment, Johan Pehrson, last week declared that some parts of the country “are crying out for staff”.

Regarding highly educated occupations, Sweden needs workers to fill job positions such as midwives, civil engineers, system analysts and IT architects, software and system developers, police officers, nursing assistants, specialist nurses, primary school teachers, special needs teachers and educators.

Meanwhile, in terms of skilled workers, the country is facing a shortage of occupations such as mobile farm and forestry plant operators, bus and tram drivers, plumbers and pipefitters, manufacturing machine operators, construction workers, motor vehicle mechanics and repairers, and welders, among others.
