I'm from Iran and am a student in Germany where I have a residency card. I want to go home and return but, rather than to Germany, direct to Sweden from Iran, to visit my friend.

It is possible or not?

    To the close voters: This is not a question for Expats -- it is specifically a question about making a short visit to Sweden, the kind of travel that is on topic here. The fact that the asker happens to live in a country other than his nationality doesn't mean that he can't or shouldn't ask about his pleasure travel away from that place on this site.

It is perfectly possible. My friend from India entered Europe through Paris even though he was a student in Germany. As your visa is student national visa, it allows multiple entries into the Schengen area and you are perfectly fine. But it is always safe to have a ticket from Sweden to Germany if you have already booked it.

    +1, but a residency card is implicitly multi-entry :)
