  No Covid test required  
  No mandatory quarantine  
  Proof of relationship     Swedish residency form (personbevis)     Copy of partner's passport  

When I got to the check in the lady asked if I had a visa or applied for one and I said no. Then said she couldn’t give me the boarding pass bc Sweden does not have partners as an exception. I started to give her all my documentation and explained that I was part of the exception. After 20mn another lady started looking through my stuff and just overwrote it. Got my boarding pass!

Easy to go through London didn’t have to speak to anyone and once made it to Sweden! The lady who checked my passport in Sweden was confused when she saw my US passport and almost didn’t stamp me in but after looking at my partners passport and personbevis she said I could go through! 😊 just need to stay confident and patient the whole time!
