ANNOUNCEMENT: Referendum vote in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland

Dear Members of the Rwandan community in the Nordic Countries,

Kindly be informed that polling stations will be set up for you to vote in the referendum on December 17, 2015.

Arrangements are underway to determine the exact location of the polling stations.  The Embassy is doing all it can to ensure that you will all have at least one polling station in each country. However, that might not work out in which case polling stations will be placed at boarder towns closest to your Country as in the past.

Sweden: confirmed polling stations:

  1. Stockholm (Embassy of Rwanda. Barnhusgatan 3, Stockholm. Nearest train stations: T-Central and Hötorget).
  2. Gothenburg (Location to be announced).

Locations for the polling stations for Norway, Denmark and Finland are yet to be confirmed. We share the locations as soon as we get them.

In the meantime, feel free to contact the embassy if you still have any questions.
