Family members are given a residence permit for reasons of family reunification. When in Sweden, they can apply for status as a refugee or person eligible for subsidiary protection, following the same procedure as an asylum seeker. For family members of refugees, there is the possibility to obtain a subsidy to cover travel costs to Sweden. In 2022, 105 applications for subsidies were granted by the SMA. The budget for travel grants for relatives in 2022 was SEK 3,9 million, out of which SEK 2,1 million was spent. For family members of persons with subsidiary protection, during 2022 the Swedish Red Cross was able to assist 13 families (representing a total of 59 individuals) to reunite in Sweden.
