General terms

Kompisbyrån mediates the first contact between new Swedes and established Swedes.

  • Our idea is to give you the possibility to meet several new persons with another background than yours, in order for you to broaden your social network.
  • Kompisbyrån connects two new fika friends, mainly based on similar interests and new start friends based on the municipality they both live in.
  • As a Fika friend, you must be able to meet your new friend in 1 of 10 cities: Göteborg, Jönköping, Kalmar, Linköping, Malmö, Stockholm, Umeå, Uppsala, Västerås or Örebro. We hope that we can connect new people in more cities in the future.
  • As a Start friend, you must live in and be able to meet in one of the following municipalities: Nacka, Solna or Tyresö.
  • Kompisbyrån is only responsible for linking together people who have lived in Sweden for a short time with people who have lived in Sweden for a long time.
  • The starting point is that you meet the same person 1 time. If you think it is fun, you can meet again by your own. If you want to meet a new person, you sign in and make a new request.
  • Everyone over 18 years (of age) can participate.
  • The registration is for free. Any costs for refreshments/"fika" or other expenses related to the meeting must be paid by each person.
  • Kompisbyrån recommends that you meet for about 1 hour at a public place in the central part of that city that you have chosen.
  • Our ambition is to find a new friend for you within 30 days. That means that you may have to wait.
  • We confirm that we have received your application, by sending an e-mail to you.
  • Remember to respect each other. A cancellation will affect the other person who has been looking forward to a meeting. Think twice before you sign up, to ensure that you really want to join us!
  • It is the main responsibility of the established Swede that you get in contact with each other within 7 days. We recommend that you exchange telephone numbers to easier get in contact with each other.
  • You need to treat each other in a respectful manner. Remember to be clear in you communication with each other, as language differences can create misunderstandings.
  • You share Kompispbyrån's belief in the equality of all human beings, regardless of sex, transgender identity or expression, ethnicity, religion or other belief, disability, sexual orientation or age.
