Registration of domicile 

  • Überblick


    If you move into accommodation, you must register with the authorities within two weeks after moving in.

    If the local authorities have provided internet registration for your new address, you can register online by providing the required information and by using a qualified electronic signature in compliance with the signature law.

    If for certain reasons you do not wish for your personal data to be passed on, you may object to this in some cases. If the conditions are fulfilled, you may apply for your information to be blocked and not passed on.
