Media visits to Sweden

Media visits to Sweden are an essential part of promoting Sweden. The visits are arranged by the Swedish Institute as a response to interest from international media.

Upcoming visits

There are no media visits to Sweden planned for 2021. We will keep you updated with possibilitites for media visits 2022.

There is a huge interest in our media trips, while the number of spots availabe is limited. This is why we recommend that you submit your candidate, fulfilling all our requirements, as soon as you can, without waiting for the deadline. We will apply the principle first come, first served, in order to give everyone a chance to participate.

Financial support for SI media visits

SI finances accommodation (3-4 nights in single room with breakfast), some meals (as stated in the programme), and transport within Sweden.

  • Each participating foreign mission is allocated one vacancy.
  • Each participating foreign mission finances the international flights and any applicable visa costs.
  • No per diem will be paid to participants.

How to apply

There are no media visits to Sweden planned for 2021. We will keep you updated with possibilitites for media visits 2022.

Submit your candidate together with a short description of the journalist and the related media and its circulation. The Embassy meets the candidate to go through the preliminary programme together. Only after the journalist’s commitment to participate should the Embassy submit all the information about the selected journalist to SI for the final confirmation.

If nothing else is specified, decisions will be based on the “first come, first served” principle, on confirmed journalist participation. Please note that we only accept journalists who have not yet participated in previous media visits arranged by SI.

The media visits are exclusively for journalists.
