A change of registration is only necessary if the character of residence is changed, i.e. if an existing secondary residence [Nebenwohnsitz] is changed into a principal residence [Hauptwohnsitz] and the former principal residence becomes a secondary residence. Furthermore, a change of registration has to be carried out in cases where the citizenship, name, civil status or sex is changed abroad. A change of registration must also be carried out for all minors living in the same household.In cases where a new principal residence (with a different address than the address of the former principal residence) is established, a registration [Anmeldung] is required instead of a change of registration. The de-registration or change of registration of the former principal residence to a secondary residence can be carried out at the same time if necessary.

The registration authority
Changes of registration can be carried out either in person or through the post or be delivered by a person you trust. However, changes of registration via fax or e-mail are currently not permitted by law.Changes of registration of minors must be carried out by their parents or legal guardians or those who are entitled to care for them. Custodians [Sachwalterinnen/Sachwalter] are required to carry out the change of registration for mentally handicapped persons as long as this procedure is part of their field of action. In cases where there are no such people the accommodation providers must carry out the change of registration.
For a change of registration you require a residence registration form [Meldezettel-Formular] which makes it possible for the registration authorities to enter the registration data into the register. This form can be downloaded and it is available at registration authorities. Furthermore, it is available at some tobacconists.
The columns of the form must be filled in completely and legibly. Please note the following characteristics:
An accommodation provider is a person who effectively provides accommodation for a person taking up the accommodation, for example
A separate residence registration form must be filled in for each person.
There are no fees or costs.
