How long does it take before I will get the documents I have requested?
We process the requests we receive expeditiously and in the order they are received. How long processing takes will depend on whether we have received sufficient information from you in order to understand what documents or information are being requested or on how extensive your request is.
Can I receive the documents by email?
In some cases we can offer to send documents by email, but this will depend on whether the documents are public or confidential and whether they contain sensitive personal data.
Does it cost anything to get copies of documents?
If you wish to have copies of public documents, Arbetsförmedlingen charges a fee in accordance with the Fees Ordinance, meaning there will be a charge if your request is for 10 pages or more.
The fee for paper copies of public documents is calculated as follows:
The first nine pages are free of charge. The tenth page costs SEK 50 and each subsequent page costs SEK 2.
Arbetsförmedlingen also charges a fee for public documents that are sent electronically. The first nine files are free of charge and the tenth file costs SEK 125. Each subsequent file costs SEK 5.
You can also read documents on site free of charge. Where exactly this is will depend on where the documents are kept.
What needs to appear in a consent or power of attorney?
A consent or power of attorney must clearly show who is giving the consent or power of attorney and who is receiving the consent or power of attorney to access information about you, as well as what the purpose of this is. For example, it must show what information can be accessed.
