Essential international travel information for Sweden

Currency

Sweden uses the Swedish Krona SEK. For more information on currency conversions visit XE. Before you leave, notify your bank, credit card company, or other financial institutions that you are going overseas. Avoid carrying cash and consider using traveler's checks or major credit cards instead (but make sure they are accepted at your destination before departing on your trip).

Weather

For the latest weather information in cities throughout Sweden visit weather.com.

General tipping

There is no obligation leave a tip in Sweden. Most of the time, the gratuity is often included as part of a service charge at restaurants in Sweden. If there is no service charge, 5-10% is the general rule for restaurant service. It is always important not to overdo it. The best option is to tip by rounding up the amount of the bill.

Holidays & observances

Imagine your reaction if your deposition had to be rescheduled because of a major local holiday when everything was closed. Don’t let that happen to your depo. You can see a complete list of holidays in Sweden here: timeanddate.com/holidays/sweden/.

Health

Check with your physician to see which shots are required and/or recommended for your trip to Sweden. You can check online resources like the U.S. Department of State Sweden country page or contact the Swedish Embassy or Consulate for current entry requirements. The World Health Organization (WHO) can provide their recommendations for vaccinations and other travel health precautions for your trip abroad.
