Couple split for 9 months by Covid as well as a sea

Victor and Tina at Stockholm airport

Tina as well as Victor have actually been with each other for 7 years as well as generally assemble every 3 months in their residences in the United States or Sweden. So when nations shut their boundaries to include the spread of coronavirus, they needed to invest 9 months apart.

Some nations – primarily in the European Union – presented “sweetie visas” which gave some kind of travel exemption to unmarried couples in a long-term relationship. Sweden introduced an exemption allowing entry to those in a long-term relationship who intend to marry or cohabit with their Swedish partner.

Because Victor had applied for a residency permit, he took his chances and booked a flight to Stockholm – nine months after leaving Tina’s home in Sweden last Christmas.
