What is Skatteverket ID Card Application?
You can apply for an ID card (identity card) from the Swedish Tax Agency. The Tax Agency ID card is an approved form of identification within Sweden. You can use the ID card as proof of your age and identity at places such as pharmacies, banks or in shops. Typically, it takes about two weeks from the time you apply for the ID card until it is ready to be picked up at the Tax Agency.
