International Student Identity Card

We advise international students to get an International Student Identity Card (ISIC) before arriving in Sweden.

The ISIC gives you immediate discounts on flights and ferries within Sweden and abroad. If you are under 26 or a student taking at least 22,5 ECTS credits (22,5 Swedish credits) during one semester, you are also entitled to discounts on ferries between Gotland and the Swedish mainland, the Swedish railway system (SJ) and on SAS airlines. Go to the ISIC web page to read more about the ISIC-card.
