Registration of your place of residence

By law all people living in Austria have to register their place of residence at the registration office. After your arrival in Austria you have to register within three working days (regardless of the duration of your stay).

Registration deadlines:
Registration: within 3 days after moving in
Change of name or nationality: within one month

For registration you need:
• valid identity card or passport
• a completed residence registration form (Meldezettel/Guide for filling in the Meldezettel)

If you hold more than one nationality, you have to submit all documents showing your surname, first name, maiden name, date of birth, place of birth, nationality and academic degree.

If you are accommodated through the OeAD, you will receive the registration form from the OeAD Housing Office.

The residence registration form must be signed both by your landlady/landlord and by you. After having presented your passport and the registration form you will receive a confirmation.

Please submit your registered address in Austria and any changes to your OeAD-Regional Office!
