See the symptoms and inconveniences we can help with here.
To book a meeting you need a Swedish personal identity number and a BankID.
Start by downloading the Kry app. Fill out the symptom form. You also have the option to attach pictures. Select either drop in or select a time. If the doctor considers that you are in need of medicine or further care, you will receive a prescription or referral.
How do I log in and out of the Kry app?
- Download the Kry app on your mobile device from either App Store or Google Play.
- Click Sign in and identify yourself with your Mobile BankID.
- If it's your first time using the app you need to register yourself as a user by entering a phone number and email address and accept the Terms of Service
Keep in mind that you can only use your own Mobile BankID in order to use the app for yourself or your child who doesn't have a Mobile BankID. It is not possible to book a meeting for someone else since Kry requires that every patient can identify themselves through Mobile BankID.
- Enter the My profile tab at the bottom right of the Kry app.
- Click on the gear and choose Log out.
Registering with a healthcare centre – what does it mean?
You can choose to register at a healthcare centre, sometimes referred to as “att lista sig” in Swedish. This means you have a main healthcare centre that can handle all your primary healthcare needs. It is free to register and you do not have to be registered anywhere.
As a registered patient at a specific healthcare centre, you always have the right to seek care at any healthcare centre in Sweden. You should always seek care first at your registered healthcare centre.
You can only be registered at one healthcare centre. If you decide to register with Kry, you will be automatically deregistered from any healthcare centre you are currently registered at. If you are currently in a queue to register at another healthcare centre, you will lose your place in this queue.
You can change your healthcare centre at any time. If a healthcare centre has a full list, they can not register more patients. This means that you might have to queue if you want to change back to your old healthcare centre.

Who are the doctors, psychologists and nursers that work at Kry?
At Kry you can come in contact with licensed medical doctors, psychologists and nursers. All of Kry's doctors have at least 6 months experience from physical primary care. Many of Kry’s doctors are also specialists within paediatrics, emergency medicine, and otolaryngology. All Kry’s medical staff are controlled by the health authorities.
Kry is open 24 hours
7 days a week
How is Kry different from the health advice and information service 1177?
At Kry you can meet a doctor who can prescribe further treatment. A doctor's appointment at Kry is therefore equivalent to a regular doctor's appointment, provided that the condition can be diagnosed without physical examination.
The health advice and information service 1177 is staffed by nurses who can provide healthcare related guidance, but who cannot prescribe further treatment. Kry therefore offers an alternative to a physical doctor's appointment by providing the possibility to meet a doctor quick and easily through an online video meeting.
Is Kry a suitable healthcare provider for all medical problems?
No, Kry is not a suitable healthcare provider if:
- You have a symptom / disorder that requires physical examination, some type of sampling or x-ray
- You are in need of drug-based medicine. These are not prescribed via Kry.
- You are in need of medicines containing pregabalin (Lyrica) or gabapentin (Neurontin)
- You want to start treatment that requires long-term and regular medical contact
- You are in need of a sick leave that may last for a long time. Kry cannot issue sick leaves longer than 14 days. The 14 days count from the first sick day, i.e. you have already been home for a week, Kry can maximally help you with 7 days sick leave.
In case of emergency, call 112 and visit an emergency room.

Can I use Kry abroad or in different Swedish locations?
Yes. As long as you have a BankID, a smartphone or tablet with good internet connection, a functioning camera, microphone and speaker, you can consult your doctor in Sweden via Kry from anywhere in the world.
Keep in mind that the prescriptions our doctors issue only can be retrieved in Sweden.
Can I book a meeting on behalf of my child?
Yes. To book an appointment for your child, log in to the Kry-app by signing up with your own BankID. Select either drop-in or select a time that suits you. You will now get the question "for whom you want to book the time", choose "My Child".
Children who are 16 years old can identify themselves with BankID at Kry.
Children must be present during the appointment, just like any other appointment at a physical healthcare center.
When do I receive my invoice?
You can pay for your appointment using invoices, via our partner Billogram. Your invoice is sent digitally via SMS and in your Kry Inbox within a week after the meeting.
Why did I receive an invoice from Billogram?
Billogram is an invoicing service that we use to create and send invoices for appointments with a patient fee:
- that remain unpaid
- that a patient chooses to pay for by invoice
The invoice is sent digitally – by SMS and to your Kry Inbox. If it’s not read within 48 hours, we send a paper invoice to your registered home address.
How can I pay my Billogram invoice?
Billogram invoices can either be paid with Swish, direct bank transfer, or using OCR numbers like on a regular paper invoice.
I’ve paid too much on an invoice. What happens now?
Sometimes, an incorrect amount may be paid.
This can happen:
- when you reach your free card (frikort) limit
- when an invoice has been paid for 2 times by mistake
If this happens, please contact our support team. They will ask you for your bank account details and send you a manual refund of the amount you are owed.
I’ve found an error on an invoice that I have not paid yet. What should I do?
Please contact our support team before paying. We will adjust the amount or credit the invoice to you.
Have I paid my Billogram invoice?
You can always click on the link to the invoice in your Kry Inbox to see the payment status on your invoice.
