folkbokföringen, moving, sambo

ok a quick possibly pointless question.

my SO and i live together. we are temporarily living in gothenburg (we'll stay for the spring or the summer but perhaps not longer). he and i are both registered in the folkbokföring (?) at his parents' place in sollentuna; we were staying there when i got my personnummer, and he's maintained his registration there though he hasn't lived there for years as he's a student and moves quite a lot (2-5 x/year). he sees it as his "permanent address" and hasn't changed it and would rather not.

i will have to change my registration to gborg because, for example, i will be working here; if i wanted to take SFI i'd have to be registered here; etc etc.

my question: do we have to be "registered" or whatever at the same address for immigration purposes? i'm thinking ahead about some kind of interview where someone will look up both of our personnummers, see that we're not listed as having the same address, and kick me out of sweden. we both have our names on the apartment, and we live together in a number of easily provable ways and have no other residences, but i'll get him to shift his address if it could cause any problems.

ok.

I would say that is a real possibility. Once you have gotten your PUT, it won't matter though as you could stay here without your guy at that point. You should be getting that soon, eller hur?

In two years? Three years total? You can get citizenship then. I got my PUT in a year, many people here got theirs in differing times, it seems to depend in part on who you get, but one year is pretty normal.

You're supposed to belong to the taxoffice where you live, no matter how often you move. Changing it is no big deal, just do an adressandring, it costs like 100 kr. I suggest you do that, but it's up to you.

i'm going to change my address with the tax people tomorrow and i think i'll try to get the SO to do it as well.

Do it over the internet - www.adressandring.se. It's cheaper...

Actually Rob, folks who are issued a UT as their initial permit usually have it extended (as another UT) at least once before they get a PUT. I think you were a lucky exception. So depending on how soon one manages to move to Sweden after the initial permit is issued...he or she can end up living here close to two years before getting a PUT. Then it's one additional year of residency to be eligible for citizenship.

As for Migrationsverket, based on my experience I somehow doubt that they will know, bother to check, or even care that bluebottle and sambo are registered at two different addresses. When my Swede and I were interviewed for my UT extension last year, they didn't even ask us for our actual address. They're only concern seemed to be that we were still living together...and we had to sign a paper affirming that we were. That was it.

Still, it sounds as though there are other good reasons to keep that kind of info updated and accurate...so if it doesn't cost anything to do it, I'd go ahead with it anyway.

cheaper?

just for anyone who needs to know.. it's not cheaper to do the address change at www.adressandring.se than at the tax office, as it's completely free to do it at the tax office.

i had to go there anyway today to meet with someone about förening stuff, so i filled out the form and dropped it with them. they said it would be changed today.

But just changing your address at the taxoffice means that companies, such as your bank, or insurance company don't get the info. Plus you don't get eftersandning...

good point. i don't have relationships with too many companies here yet so i didn't think of that- i changed my address with the bank online and that was about it.
