Thank you for your question. My goal is to provide you with the best possible answer.

To achieve that goal it may be that I will find that I need to gather further information from you. As well, it's quite possible that you may feel the need to ask me additional questions for further clarification.

But, please understand that as a careful lawyer I will always give you an honest answer even if the answer is sometimes not what you were hoping for.

To come for a visit she would need to get a visitor's visa and would have to show strong ties to Sweden. She would have to show she has a job, a home (lease or deed), ties to the community etc.

Here is a link to the information she will need:

If your brother wants to sponsor her as his spouse then once he is married he can do this.

The way this works is that the sponsorship application and the permanent resident application go in together. Once your brother is approved as a sponsor his spouse's application will be processed.

She will need to undergo medical, background and criminal checks.

Here is the link to the webpage that has all the information and forms:
