Default Thinking of moving to Sweden

Hi all,
My partner is Swedish and we've been living in the UK for 10 years together but are now considering a move to Sweden (Skane) I'm wondering what life is like for Expats. Particularly the work situation and social life. I'm a carpenter with rudimentary Swedish, but prepared to be much better by the time we go. I've been to Sweden quite a few times and have a good idea about what the country is like. My partner thinks Sweden is insular and that there may some racist issues i'd have to deal with. Has anyone come across this?

Hello and a big welcome to BE.

Excellent information can be found in the BE Wiki, not forgetting the Living and Moving Abroad forum that will help you, another set of great help is the permanent threads at the TOP of each forum, they are very pertinent to that particular forum and makes sensible reading.

Moderators deal with any problems that arise such as inappropriate posts, spammers etc, you will find their names at the bottom right hand side of each forum's index in bold font.

Please contact me if I can give you any further help.

Hi Casey

First of all welcome to BE.
We don't yet have a forum dedicated to Sweden, however I do know there are a fair few expats who live in Sweden and post on our Europe forum, so I would recommend you check in and say hi there to make contact with them.
You will find this forum by clicking on the 'forum index' tab on the top left of this page, scroll down the list of countries then double click on Europe and you're in.

Once you find the other folks who are living and working in Sweden they will be able to advise you on the issues you are concerned about.

In the meantime I wish you all the very best with your decision and plans

Hi Casey,

Welcome to BE. I just wanted to let you know that we've recently added a Scandinavia forum and we have a growing group of members who are in Sweden, or moving there. So if you haven't checked it out yet you can find the forum here: http://britishexpats.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=174

So dig in and say hi and get to know everyone.

Welcome again and please don't hesitate to give one of us a shout if you get stuck on anything.
