sweden sans? sweden has its own font? i'm jealous.
That's it, moving to Sweden.
The site froze momentarily in my browser due to the poor state of Australian internet so I'm assuming they have faster internet in Sweden to build these types of sites. I will second your sentiment!
Haha Australian living in Sweden, can confirm internet is crazy fast and cheap here. We're pretty behind in that regard.
Anybody hiring on that side? Intrigued Canadian here.
Yeah plenty of work around. Scandinavia is expensive though, check out jobs in Germany, Holland or the UK too as it's a bit cheaper. I think Canadians can get the same visa as us, year long working holiday.
Interesting, thank you for the help :)
being a guy that now lives here, Im always surprised how seriously the state and people around take this issue. Its amazing to see that coming up – even tho if its not always great.
Compared to other countries I lived in, Sweden also has one of the simplest, friendliest and easy-to-understand migration processes ever. Since I moved here ( late 12 ) they did MAJOR udpates their migration website and service 2-3 times. Check out on http://www.migrationsverket.se/ and prepare to be amazed. Only GOV.uk seems to keep up with the high-end state service design stuff.
And, again, guys like this are very welcoming and friendly http://soderhavet.com/uppdrag/sverige/.
EDIT: Added söderhavet info.
Holy stickiness that scroll experience is off the chain!
Recently made a presentation about the history of Sweden. Such a coincidence to find this here.
In regards to migration in Sweden, I haven't heard the best news.
What have you heard that's bad? Granted I haven't lived there for years, but last I heard, we're most welcoming to foreigners and it's very easy to get into the system etc.
Soon back home though, at last…
If you're familiar with Yung Lean, one of his friends who goes by name of Thaiboy Digital was recently deported from Sweden. (a few days ago)
He's a Thai immigrant who lived in Sweden for 10 years. He was always trying to apply for residence but he was rejected many times so he had to live with a friend.
This is the petition they started: https://www.change.org/p/thaiboy-digital-stay-in-sweden
I find this a bit difficult to take seriously. If he's been in Sweden for ten years he'd have been a citizen since long. He would have been a little kid then.
My apologies. After scrolling through his tweets, he mentions that there was a fraudulent lawyer involved who affected his situation and left with his money.
That's the extent of what I know. I apologize if you had taken this the wrong way. I'm actually a fan of Yung Lean and his friends and I had recently completed a presentation about Sweden (which from what I've read, sounds like a great place to live) but when I looked up any current news, that was what came up.
No, no apologies needed. It's undeniably tragic if this has happened, but there must have been a major cock-up in the department(s) responsible, because children - as far as I know - are automatically granted asylum et cetera. (About 15% of our population are immigrants so it's not like we're opposed to the idea.)
Surprisingly I can't find it in any news media! With the amount of 'signatures' on that petition you linked I expected a top hit on Google. It's embarrassing if it's been covered up, or I just suck at searching, lol.
I hope somebody gets him a decent lawyer at least rather than that douche bag, because at this point he must feel more Swedish than Thai.
One great thing about Sweden is the paternity leave. www.buzzfeed.com/lynzybilling/this-is-what-it-looks-like-when-men-are-allowed-to-take-60-d
Haha, yeah and all of the holidays and celebrations. Midsummer!
