I'm a Swedish citizen living in a flat rent is paid by the Swedish Social Security system. I want to invite my friend, an Indian, to visit me. Will it be a problem for Social Security if I invite my friend? He will just stay at my place. All the expenses are borne by him. He works in India. He will show his income. I'm wondering if I provide the invitation to him, the Social Security office might ask me questions.

By on social, I mean that I'm not working, unemployed, and government is giving me money every month.

    @Mohit Is your accommodation paid for by the Swedish social security system? If so, you may not be entitled to invite your friend to stay with you without permission. – Traveller Oct 27 '18 at 6:45

    If your friend is paying all expenses anyway, things will be easier if he just budgets for staying at a hotel. Visa applications that need to rely on a local resident providing accommodations are weaker than when the applicant can fund the entire trip alone. – Henning Makholm Oct 27 '18 at 22:45
