Answer Source

Yes you can do that like this :

func webView(webView: UIWebView, shouldStartLoadWithRequest request: NSURLRequest, navigationType: UIWebViewNavigationType) -> Bool {
        if (navigationType == UIWebViewNavigationType.FormSubmitted) {
            let VC = self.storyboard?.instantiateViewControllerWithIdentifier("myViewControllerName") as? myViewControllerName

            let navigationController = UINavigationController(rootViewController: VC!)
            self.navigationController?.presentViewController(navigationController, animated: true, completion:nil)

        return true
