As we have reached mid-OCtober and still no announcement, I don't think we will see another state visit in 2016.

My wishes predictions for 2017:

- Incoming state visit from Iceland (January)
- Incoming state visit from The Netherlands (March/April)
- Outward state visit to Argentina (September/October)

Yes it seems unlikely that there will be anymore outgoing/incoming state visits for this year unless something is announced this week for December. I have never heard a state visit being announced with less than a month away.

What to expect or hope for in 2017 ? Well i hope there will be atleast one outgoing visit to and one incoming visit from an another monarchy.

Possible Incoming Visits : Iceland, Colombia, Denmark, Spain, Netherlands, Bhutan, Argentina, Latvia, Germany, France...

Possible Outgoing State Visits : India, Colombia, Peru, Luxembourg, United Kingdom, South Africa, Ireland...

The dream would be to see an outgoing Swedish State Visit to UK :)

I think you have pretty good guesses here. It is hard to be more precise in the guesses as there haven't been that many rumors that we have heard of. I have the impression that the Swedish Government values state visits to/from non-European countries. However we come closer to European monarch state visit as the years go by. And I have a hard time to see more than one monarch state vist per year, even if I hope for both one incoming and outgoing.

I would say that Jordan is a possible candidate to the list as well, the King and Queen haven't visited the country in King Abduallah's reign and it is more than 10 years since their visit to Sweden.

Jordan is definitely a possibility for an outgoing state visit.

I'd say that UK is a good possibility too. One of Swedens undoubtly closest partners in many things is UK.
The last outgoing state visit to UK was to Scotland in 1975 with only The King there as he was unmarried (Princess Margaretha and John Ambler attended the state banquet at Holyrood House) and the last incoming state visit from UK was in 1983. I know most head of state's do only one state visit during one reign but a few has done 2.

I do so hope for a state visit to the UK as well. But I think it is hard to predict a possible state visit to the UK due to Brexit, however UK is a very important partner for Sweden.

It seems that the Swedish Government has valued improved relations to the countries in the Baltic region. I don't know what countries that are left now, after the state visit to Germany, so perhaps that speaks for the very anticipated state visit from Denmark.

Not a state visit, but...

Finland celebrates in 2017 100 years of independence. President Sauli Niinistö told about the celebrations to the press on Tuesday.
Among other things, the centenary year will also feature in the President’s trips abroad and visits from overseas to Finland. For example, on 1 June, visits to Finland will be made by all of the Nordic heads of state i.e. the monarchs of Sweden, Norway and Denmark, and the President of Iceland.

Thanks LadyFinn. I have actually thought of Finland's celebrations of 100 years of independence, and if that would mena anything for the visits. Once again, thanks. It will probably be a nice and festive occasion.

Not a state visit, but:
Crown prince Frederik and crown princess Mary will be heading a Danish business delegation to Stockholm in the end of May. The overall theme for the delegation visit is “Liveable Scandinavia.” There will be for instance an official dinner, so it would be nice to see Victoria and Daniel invited to the events too.

Thanks LadyFinn for the information about this visit, I haven't heard of it before. I agree, hopefully we'll see some interactions with the Swedish Royals during this visit, but I'm afraid this means we won't see a Danish state visit to Sweden shortly.

What could we expect for the fall. I think it is really hard to predict Swedish state visit right now, not much rumors about potential countries.

In the year 2018, Sweden and Japan will celebrate 150 years of diplomatic relations. This anniversary year will be celebrated through a range of activities both in Sweden and Japan.
Sweden - Japan 150 years _ SwedenAbroad

Will we royals in these events?

I would think quite likely. Not an official state visit, but something. A smaller visit like Victoria in Italy. Maybe even someone like CP and if Japan sent someone, Takomodo. But will have to see.

I have also thought about this one before, and it is nice too see that the event will be marked. I don't think it's unlikely that The Royal Couple pays an official visit to Japan.

In the announcement of the state visit from Kazakhstan it was referred to the country as one of 26 prioritized countries for business and trade promotion. I checked these countries, from the Government's Export Strategy which could be found here: http://www.regeringen.se/4b003b/cont...t-strategy.pdf

Algeria, Angola, Brazil, China, Colombia, Egypt, Germany, India, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Mexico, Nigeria, the Philippines, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom

I guess we will see all, or almost every incoming and outward state visit during this government to be to these countries, some of them are already "ticked off".
