Swedbank and sparbankerna issues Swedish Standards Institute (SIS) approved ID cards, which are a valid form of ID in Sweden. You can choose between: - ID card, - ID card with Bank ID.
ID cards with Bank ID are an SIS-approved form of ID, which also feature a chip containing your e-identification. You use Bank ID to identify yourself and sign documents online. You can use Bank ID on the card to log into and approve instructions to your internet bank. You can also order a Bank ID card without a photo, in which case it only functions as a form of e-identification.
Who can order ID cards?
You should be a customer of the bank and be able to provide an approved form of ID. ID cards are not issued to customers with a coordination number.
How to get an ID card
When you want to order an ID card/Bank ID, you should visit your bank branch. When you place the order, you will need to provide proof of your identity with an approved form of ID, as well as a photo that meets the photo requirements. Please note that school photos do not usually meet these requirements.
If you have protected identity, have changed your name, are an expatriate or a new Swedish citizen, you will need to submit an extract from the population register, which is no more than one month old.

- SIS-approved ID cards
