Basic information:

Entry:  Sweden is part of the Schengen area. Flights within Schengen can land at any airport without the need to clear customs/immigration controls. Arrivals/Departures to/from any other countries need to proceed via international airports and clear the customs/immigration.
FPL: An FPL is required for all international flights and for flights which are partly or entirely carried out in controlled airspace. An FPL is also compulsory for flights at/above 5000 feet AMSL or 3000 feet AGL – whichever is higher. An FPL must be filed at least 60 minutes prior to the intended departure.   More information on filing a flight plan in Sweden can be found here:  https://aro.lfv.se/Editorial/View/2440/ES_ENR_1_10_en
