Changing to a short term address in Basel Stadt

Hello All,

I know there has been some discussions regarding this matter in 2013 and earlier, but I was hoping for some more updated advise.

I need to stay temporarily at a friends place In Basel Stadt for a month (currently live in Basel Stadt) and then I need to find a permanent place.

I have a B plastic card permit until 2023 and as I am moving within Basel stadt - do I physically have to go into the registration office with proof that my friend is allowing me to stay at her address (letter) and show her contract etc etc or can I just change this online myself?

It seems a bit of a hassle for 1 month or less, and if I can just change it online is there a Link? The link below from the posts in 2013 is not working.

Obviously, I have changed address before but for longer and I had a contract.

Just wondered how you advise its temporary.

Any advise is welcome

I was going to even rent a air bob for this short period and that you cannot register anyway, so what does one do in this kind of interim situation

Ask the Einwohnermeldeamt (registration office) where you would go to change your address. They will either tell you whether it's necessary or not.

Basically in Switzerland you have to tell them even if you move one house further up the road.

Take a look:
https://www.eumzug.swiss/eumzugngx/canton/BS


You can report your move online if it's within BS. Yes, you will pay, but you're legally obliged to report any change of address.

Hi Loulou - you can use an AirBnB for a short term registration. I did this when I arrived in Basel Stadt 4 months ago.

you don't need to because all moves are temporary.
