Processing time for Schengen visa in the Embassy/Consulate is 15 calendar days or less, not including the delivery time (maximum one week) to Embassy/Consulate It may take extra days for special cases. Please note that some third country nationals are subject to consultation in accordance with Article 22 of the Schengen Visa Code which may prolong the Embassy┬┤s or Consulate-General┬┤s processing time with up to 7 additional days. 

A Schengen visa can be granted for between 1 and 90 days. You have to make use of these days within a given time frame (period of validity).

How many days you are allowed to stay in the Schengen area, and during which period, is stated on the permit attached to your travel document. Please note that the Swedish Mission Abroad adds 15 days of validity to your visa to make your time more flexible, in case you have to postpone your trip. However, you are still only allowed to stay in the Schengen area for the amount of days stated on your sticker.

A visa does not automatically mean you can enter the Schengen area. Entry checks are always made at external border points. It is therefore a good idea to bring along copies of the documents you submitted when applying for a visa. Border controls may result in your being denied entry.
