Removal of travel restriction for people waiting for their residency application in Sweden

In Sweden, foreign nationals who are waiting for their application of a residency permit or its extension can not travel abroad before they receive a response from the Migration Board. This openly violates freedom of movement. Long waiting periods (between 12-21 months) is not the responsibility of the applicants. There are people who wish to see their family, business people who need to travel. This problem can be solved by a temporary travel document. On the contrary, Swedish authorities advise foreign embassies not to accept any visa applications from people in this situation. Madame Minister we would like you to solve this situation that hinders freedom of movement and causes great distress and losses for people concerned.
