The Alumni Swedia as a group in Indonesia was established as early as 2007, when there were quite some numbers of Indonesian students went to Sweden to pursue their higher education and returned to Indonesia. When it was first established as a group, Alumni Swedia was merely in a form of mailing list. In 2008, the Indonesian students in Sweden then re-established Persatuan Pelajar Indonesia Swedia (PPI Swedia) or Indonesian Student Association in Sweden. PPI Indonesia Swedia got in touch with Alumni Swedia, and since then, close cooperation between the two groups was created.
At the same time, the number of Indonesian students in Sweden increases, and quite matter of factly, so does the number of Sweden Indonesian alumni. Since then, the Alumni Swedia also stays in close contact with the Swedish Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia, and the alumni have been invited in many events organized by the Swedish Embassy.
Finally, with supports from Mrs. Ewa Polano, the Swedish Ambassador in Jakarta, the Alumni Swedia was established as a formal organization on May 4, 2013, and elected its first chairman, Erlangga Arfan graduated from Chalmers University of Technology, and its board members.
