Transport issues

Ukrainian refugees can use public transport for free in the Stockholm and Uppsala regions, as well as in the city of Karlskrona, upon presentation of a Ukrainian foreign or domestic passport.

In all other regions of Sweden, travel for Ukrainian refugees is paid and depends on the carrier.

In Sweden, every transport operator has its own website and mobile application, where you can quickly find routes, buy tickets, register them and take advantage of special discounts and promotions.

Ukrainian refugees in Sweden under Temporary Protection may have the right to use their Ukrainian driver's license for the duration of their stay in the country under the Directives.

Those who have received temporary protection can use their valid Ukrainian driver's license in Sweden until the temporary protection expires, provided that the license is valid.

When violating traffic rules, a person with a Ukrainian driver's license is checked according to the same rules as a person with a Swedish driver's license. This can result in the temporary or permanent cancellation of your driving license in Sweden for a certain period.

From June 2023, in Sweden, it became possible for Ukrainian refugees to apply for an exception to the rules regarding documents for passing a driving test. Each application is considered individually. For this, it is necessary to pay an appropriate fee - the so-called inspection fee.

The following documents should be attached to the application:

  1. A signed statement from the applicant or a signed power of attorney.
  2. A copy of a valid passport from Ukraine.
  3. A copy of the residence permit card (UT card).
  4. Proof of social security number or other identity documents.

An application for an exception can be sent to the e-mail address or sent by post to the following address:
