The 44-year-old first arrived in Sweden in 2013, and is currently working as a cook at a restaurant in Vänersborg, a town north of Gothenburg on the shores of Lake Vänern. His wife, who moved to Sweden a year after him, is a part-owner of the same restaurant and the couple have bought an apartment nearby. Their two children, aged nine and 13, attend the local school and have settled in to life in Sweden.
"I always thought Sweden was a nice country. I came here because I wanted to work, and it's my home now," said Bista.
But in October 2017, more than a year after the family moved to Vänersborg, Bista's application to renew his work permit was rejected by the Swedish Migration Agency. In the decision, seen by The Local, the agency ordered Bista to leave Sweden for Nepal within just four weeks.
The reason was that he had not taken sufficient annual leave during his employment in Stockholm,
Strange country...they will import people (middle eastern folks) with little or no skills, for "compassionate reasons."...
but the Nepali citizen says he was not aware of this regulation.
The cook argues that he contributes a lot to Swedish society, both by working and paying tax and by integrating into the community in his new town. In his current job in Vänersborg, Bista says he has followed Swedish regulations on vacation allowance.
Bista has appealed the decision at an administrative court, but his appeal was rejected. He is now working with a lawyer in the hope that the Migration Court of Appeal – which has the final say in such cases – will take up his case.
These are mostly practitioners of the "religion of peace" and typically do not assimilate.
They will most likely (eventually) out-bread the "native population" and then, most likely, take over....
But this fellow who holds down a job, and pays his taxes, him and his family get the boot!
