You've decided to settle in Lucerne? You're moving within the town, or you're intending to leave Lucerne? You will find here key information regarding arrivals, departures and change of address notifications.

In any of these three cases, you should notify the Residents' Register Office of your intentions within 14 days at the office counter in person or using the online form. Changing your place of residence (i.e. moving apartment) within the same apartment building also requires notification to the Register Office.
