Default Moving to Sweden

Hi Guys
Just wanting to check some details regarding a possible move to Sweden..or Denmark..

Hello,
I have just seen your website and I see you specialise in things related to immigration to Sweden, if it is possible, I was wondering if you could help me.

MI am an Irish citizen, my wife (from Mexico) is here in Ireland with me, she has residency here in Ireland, work permit etc, she is completely legal.

We have both seen some jobs in Sweden/Denmark which interest us alot, but I just wanted to check the process of being able to move before contacting any potential employers.

I would just like to check the following information is correct please..

- me being an EU citizen, I can go and work in without any real difficulty
- my wife can accompany me to Sweden/denmark and she must register herself in the first 3 months
- her possibility to be registered is because I am an EU citizen and I am working (exercising EU rights)


If you can confirm these things please, and also,

- are any financial declarations necessary?
- her registration process, how long does that take normally? (here in Ireland I think it usually takes aprox 12 days)

Any help with these questions would be absolutely fantastic, than you very much
Allan

Language language language! Unless you have a definite job offer preferably with an English speaking company or BU then you must have at least rudimentary Swedish. Preferably you can read Swedish. Even professionals with more than one degree and plenty experience struggle to get a decent job without the language.
Also Sweden takes a bit of time to get used to. In my case at least 18 months- 2 years.
Dont jump in on a whim, research and choose carefully where you should live and what the cost of living will be.
Sweden is a tough gig, the secret is knowing where to live and getting used to the country. That only happens with time, a decent job and the resultant network you develop. If you dont know anybody, dont have the language, and dont have a job offer then dont consider it. Good luck

And even when you have a high level of Swedish you will be the eternal foreigner.
