    I like information Available on this site , this is really helping for hundreds of people.

  3. I will be moving to Stockholm this summer. My husband has a job and I understand he will be eligible for the Swedish healthcare system. I won’t be working, will I still be eligible? Will my 1-year-old son be eligible? If so, how do we get registered for the healthcare system? And do we need any specific kind of Visa or proof of residency in Sweden to become eligible? Thanks!

  4. Was just reviewing this info to make sure that I knew the closest hospital for 24 hour emergency care in Stockholm and noticed that Södersjukhuset was not listed in this category. I noticed that the U.S. Embassy Healthcare guide, now 5 years old, did not list it either. Suggest that you update and check the other info since this an excellent service that you provide.
