Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Embassy of Sweden London should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Embassy of Sweden London,

For the last six months I have been trying to arrange an appointment to renew my wife’s Swedish passport at the embassy in London.

I go to the online booking system three times a day and get the same message that no appointments are available and that new appointments are added on a regular basis.

Can you supply me with the following information for period 1 April 2022 - 31 July 2022

The total number of appointments added to the online booking system
The dates and times at which appointments have been added to the system

Yours faithfully,
Andrew Ponton
