If you move from one address to another, it is important that you notify your change of address to the municipal authorities. A distinction is made between:
1. Moving to an address within the municipality;
2. If you move to an address in another municipality;
3. Moving to Horsens Municipality from an address in another country.
1. Moving to an address within the municipality
If you move to a different address within the municipality you currently live in, you must inform the municipal authorities of your new address within five days of moving.
Changing your address must be done digitally. You will need to use digital self-service to report your address change. This self-service can be used at any time. Click here to report your address change online (in Danish).
Help with digital self-service
If you need help on how to access the digital self-service, please do not hesitate to show up in person at the Citizen Service (Borgerservice in Danish) and ask for help. They will then guide you through the process.
Please note: in order to use digital self-service, you will need to use your NemID. For information on NemID, click here.
Health insurance card
When you have given notice to the authorities about your address change, a new "yellow" health insurance card will be issued automatically. The new card with your new address will be sent to your new address. Read more about the health insurance card here.
2. If you move to another municipality
You must notify the municipality to which you are moving within five days of moving. Contact the Citizen Service in the municipality you move to.
3. Are you moving to Horsens Municipality from another country?
If you are moving to the Municipality of Horsens from another country (meaning you do not yet have an address in Denmark), you must follow a different registration procedure than the one listed above. Please click here for more information.
