Laugh all the way to the bank
Or at least avoid crying on your way back from it because they won’t let you open an account! 😀
Sweden is getting closer and closer to a cashless society – don’t be surprised if even your friends ask to pay you back something they owe you by direct deposit to your bank account! You will most likely need to pay your rent by bank wire (PlusGiro or BankGiro), and if only for that it might be worth considering getting a Swedish account.
Easier said than done of course – so Lund University has prepared this document to help you figure it all out. Don’t forget to take a queue number when you walk in! 😉
