Overseas Delivery Announcement

As you know, the Coronavirus/COVID-19 situation is changing by the minute around the world.  As the situation continues to develop, it is our goal to ensure you have the information you need and that - above all else - you remain safe!  
 
We have continued to monitor the situation closely with the  US and Swedish government on their guidelines for international travel. On Friday, it was announced the international banned into Sweden has been extended.  For the safety of our customers and our employees, we have made the decision to suspend deliveries in Sweden through August 10th. This decision has been made to keep in guidelines with both the US and Swedish government.  Therefore, for your convenience, we have created a simple webform explaining your options regarding future travel and delivery of your new Volvo.  Please follow the link below and select the option that you are most comfortable with at this time.  Thank You and please stay well.
 
If you have any questions or are experiencing any issues in reaching your Volvo dealer due to temporary closures please contact Volvo Customer Care at overseas@volvoforlife.com.
