How to proceed when an employee is going to work abroad

The way the insurances work is dependent on how long the employee is going to be away and in which country they are going to be working. Follow our checklists to make sure you get all the pieces in place.

Remember this when an employee is going to work abroad

  • If the employee is working in a country within the EU/EEA or United Kingdom, their social insurance will remain valid for maximum 2 years, or 5 years following a dispensation. The dispensation is not valid for United Kingdom. In other countries social insurance is usually valid for maximum 1 year or according to the convention.
  • Insurances according to the collective agreement are usually valid when an employee is working abroad on the employer’s behalf.
  • If the employee is working abroad and is no longer covered by Swedish social insurance, you need to submit a report regarding their service abroad to Fora for blue collar workers or Collectum for white collar workers.
