Re: Change Address in Basel

Not sure you can do it online - in Zurich, one has to go to the Gemeinde / Stadtverwaltung / Einwohnerkontrolle to pay and get the address changed.

Maybe this is the place for you for BS:

Re: Change Address in Basel

Hey Rose,

When we moved within Basel, all we did was updated our address at the Migration office at Shifflande and then went to our neighbourhood Die Post and asked to change our address. You will also have to pay a nominal fee at the Die Post so that they forward all your mail to the new address for the next few weeks (transition period). Apart from that there was nothing else that we had to do.

Plus make sure that you change your address for all your insurance, cell phones etc etc contracts.

Thanks,

Stig

Re: Change Address in Basel

You have to take your permit and passport, and visit the Einwohneramt, Spiegelgasse 6, office personally. You also need to inform the Strassenvekehrsamt about your driving license / vehicle.

This is all (used to be) free of charge in Bern.

Because you don't have a creditcard format Ausländerausweis you can't do it online. (The creditcard format Ausweis works on the same basis as the creditcard format driving license).

This is the case for EU/EEA nationals who aren't eligible for the credit card format Ausländerausweis.

The site states the following to this effect:
Hinweis an unsere ausländische Kundschaft Personen, die nicht bereits im Besitz eines neuen Ausländerausweises in Kreditkartenformat sind oder über eine EG/EFTA-Bewilligung verfügen, müssen ihre Adressänderung innerhalb des Kantons Basel-Stadt persönlich beim Einwohneramt anzeigen.
Alle betroffenen Personen müssen mit dem Ausländerausweis und dem Reisepass an der Spiegelgasse 6 vorsprechen.

I don't think you're right. I interpret your quoted text as saying you need to attend personally if you have neither a CC type card nor a EU/EFTA permit. That is, you only need to attend if you are a non-EU with a paper permit.

I changed my address online with no problem.

Re: Change Address in Basel

I just changed my address in Basel Stadt by phone, got the number on this page:

http://www.bdm.bs.ch/ueber-uns/adressen-lageplan.htm

Rang them up and they changed to my new address even though I'm in a temporary address for October and not moving to my new address until Nov 1st.

Re: Change Address in Basel

Hi I have two questions

1) When moving to a new Canton, do i need to deregister at the old canton if so do I do that before or after registering at the new one?

2) Is there a way to do this online. I am moving from Basel to Lucerne

Thanks

Re: Change Address in Basel

Old thread but I need some help. I'm someone scared of doing things wrong and I need to verify the process:
Moving within Basel-Stadt,
1) requesting address change @ Die Post,
2) declaring address change @ the local authority (I don't know where & how and whether it's possible to do it online),
3) any other authority and/or office to declare the address change?

I'm asking the second question having read the above posts, not sure whether things have changed since then.

Re: Change Address in Basel

The current link for changing your address (within Basel-Stadt) online if you are Swiss/EU/EFTA is

https://secure.bs.ch/web/bdm/Wohnen/...-formular.html

Non-EU/EFTA (those with credit card permits) need to do it in person at the migrationsamt.

Utilities companies, mobile/landline phone provider, bank/s, etc. Anyone you get a bill from basically. Then of course all the friends and family.
