It also includes a language introduction to the most useful terms for the newly arrived who have to navigate the system, from the legal obligations to civic information. Teaching material for those who teach migrants and refugees is also available. The portal intends to make it easier for the newly arrived to Sweden, and for them to find answer to questions on how Swedish society works and which authorities to get into contact with upon arrival. There is a step-to-step guide on how get a residence permit and how to engage in Swedish society and to find a job or an education.
