Service description

If you have an eID card and your address changes, you must also change your address on your eID card.
If you have a primary residence, to change your address on your eID card, you will need to go to the Resident Affairs Office at your primary residence.
If you are not required to register, the eID card authority in whose district you live at the time of the change of address is responsible for you.
Your address will only be changed on the chip of your eID card because no address is printed on the card itself.
