If you move into a new home, you must register with the registration office responsible for you at your new place of residence within two weeks of moving in.

The municipalities of Stuttgart, Freiburg im Breisgau, Oberndorf and Ladenburg are currently piloting electronic residence registration. You can also register your new home online here under certain conditions (see below).

To register, you usually have to appear in person at the registration office. The registration office will record your new data and provide you with a printout of the data. You confirm the accuracy and completeness of your data by signing the printout.

You will then receive written confirmation in the form of a free official registration confirmation.

  • Authorisation if you wish to register on behalf of another person

The registration office may request further documents from you to prove the information provided. Example: Marriage certificate, birth certificate.

You can also register your family members if they have lived with you in the same home and are moving with you. For technical reasons, this is currently not possible in the pilot operation for electronic residence registration.

If you are under 16 years of age, you must be registered by the person whose home you are moving into.

If you are over 18 years of age and a carer or guardian has been appointed for you who can determine your residence, your new home must be registered by your carer or guardian.

You only have to register newborn babies born in Germany if they move into a different home to that of their parents or mother.

Your landlord is obliged to confirm in writing that you have moved into the new home. Present this certificate to the registration office. Confirmation from the landlord is also possible electronically. In this case, you will receive an allocation feature which is used to process the confirmation.
