A Swedish personal identity number can only be obtained if you have a residence permit valid in Sweden for 12 months or longer.
Apply for one
You apply for the Swedish Personal Identity Number through the Swedish Tax Agency (Skatteverket) once you arrive in Sweden.
Adress to Skatteverket
Barnarpsgatan 62, Jönköping (Near campus).
Skatteverket will also be present on campus during Introduction Week.
If you have received a Swedish personal identity number, you need to inform the university since that information does not reach us automatically. Your temporary ID number (T-number) should be replaced if you have a Swedish Personal Number. Please visit the Service Center and bring your JU-card and the decision from Skatteverket (or an ID-card with the Swedish personal number on it).
