Notification of move

In all matters relating to notifications of move citizens are assisted by Local Register Offices.

According to Finnish legislation, you must always submit a notification of move if you move permanently into a new home or if your temporary stay at another address is longer than three months. The notification can be made at the earliest one month in advance. However you must take care of that the notification has been received by the Local Register Office within a week of your move at the latest.

The easiest way to submit a notification of move is to use the online service (24 h a day). You can make an online notification using Internet Bank access codes, an identity card or Posti username.

You can also submit your notification of move by filling in the form that you can pick up at post office or Local Register Office.

For further information, please contact your Local Register Office.
