Why Sweden Is Deporting High-Skilled Labor Migrants

Sweden has a serious labor problem. A lack of qualified talent is hampering employers and obstructing growth, especially in sectors such as tech that require skilled labor.

And yet, many high-skilled migrants are seeing their work permit extensions rejected on the basis of small administrative errors made during their residency.

The expulsions happen when a worker is applying for an extension to their work permit. Generally, new workers will get a two-year visa, which is renewed for another two years, after which the worker can apply for permanent residence. 

Very often it is only after two or four years that mistakes in the application or permit obligations are noticed, by which time it can be too late to fix.

The mistakes often involve insurance, but can also be cases where someone was accidentally paid below the minimum wage for their sector or did not take enough holiday.
