  • When the salary requirement for work permits was raised last November, Krisnendu Mahalder and Poli Sarker feared they would be forced to leave Sweden with their two-year-old daughter.
  • But a job 800 kilometres north, in Skellefteå, became the solution, and the family is now finding their feet in new surroundings.
  • ”It’s been a roller-coaster journey, but overall, I am very happy how it turned out,” says Krisnendu Mahalder
