Register the change in address

You have to register the change of address at the Bürgerdienste International during the first two weeks after you have moved into the private apartment. Please submit the filled in Wohnungsgeberbestätigung to the Bürgerdienste International as well.

Following departments also need your current address: your funding agency (Sozialamt or Jobcenter), Ausländerbehörde (foreigners' registration office), Bundesamt für Migration und Flüchtlinge (BAMF) (Federal Office for Migration and Refugees) and court if there is an ongoing trail (for example Verwaltungsgericht (administrative court), if you have lodged an objection).

It might happen that you do not get your money or that an asylum application fails, if the administrative departments do not have your current address.
