The warrant was issued late yesterday, said a spokeswoman at Sweden's prosecutors' office in Stockholm.
She said Assange should contact the Swedish police for questioning about the accusations of molestation and rape in two separate cases "so that he can be confronted with the suspicions".
Assange has denied the charges, which were first reported by the Swedish tabloid Expressen, on Wikileaks' Twitter account.
