Service description

If the electronic ID card (online ID function) is activated on your ID card and your address changes, you must also have your address changed on the chip of your ID card.

The electronic proof of identity is the online ID function of your ID card, which you can use, for example, to deal with digital administrative procedures or to identify yourself to online retailers on the Internet.

In order to change your address on the chip of your identity card, you must visit the office responsible for residents' affairs at your new place of residence in person. As proof of your new address, you must present your official confirmation of registration and the confirmation from the landlord.

If you have registered your new place of residence electronically, your new address will automatically be transferred from the population register to the chip in your identity card.
