Change of address

Inform us of your change of address as soon as you know you will be moving house. You can also make a statutory change of address notification to the local register office. The taxation municipality, voting location and the entitlement to certain social security services, among other things, are determined on the basis of the notification. A change of address notification must always be submitted to the local register office when permanently moving from one apartment to another or when temporary residence at another address lasts for more than three months. The information is automatically also sent to many other organizations (see below).
