In most cases, you are not entitled to benefits if you are abroad, but if you have an interview, you can receive benefits. At the arbetsförmedling, you can also be granted compensation for travel and accommodation.

If you are going to a job interview abroad, you may be entitled to benefits. This applies to the whole world, not just within the EU / EEA. The time of the job interview must be confirmed by either arbetsförmedlingen or the company interviewing.

Benefits from us the day of the interview

You can receive benefits for the day you go to the job interview. We assess from case to case whether time before or after the interview can be reimbursed.

  • If you have a long way to go to the interview, benefits can be provided for a few more days before and / or after.
  • If the job interview takes place at a time of day that requires you to arrive / depart on a different day than the one when the interview is held, benefits can also be given.

You can receive compensation from arbetsförmedling for interview trips

The employment service can grant compensation for interview trips and compensation within the framework of the project "Your first EURES job". These benefits mainly apply to transport and accommodation and do not affect the right to unemployment benefits.

Upload your certificates and contact us before

Regardless, it is important that you contact us well in advance and can prove the interview journey with either a certificate from arbetsförmedlingen or through a written notice of the interview stating the day of the interview. Upload the certificate in Mina sidor.
