Service Description

If your address changes, you must also have your address changed on your eID card.

If you have a main residence, you must go to the registration office responsible for you at your main place of residence to change the address on your eID card.

If you do not have a main residence, you can go to the relevant registration office in the place where you currently live to change your address.

Your address will only be changed on the chip of your eID card, as no address is printed on the card itself.
