Resident Permit extension
Generally, a resident permit is issued for a period of 1 year. If you want to extend this, you have to initiate the extension before the expiry date. As the process for extension takes a little longer time, apply it way ahead of the expiry because you have to stay in Sweden when the process is on.
Resident Permits for Work and Business
If you already have a study resident permit after you have completed studies at Sweden, you can get a resident permit of employment. You can also think of starting a business of your own. It is necessary that you apply for this before your present study permit expires.
