However, if you are moving in order to attend compulsory school or upper secondary school, you must be registered at your parents' address. The basic rule is that you must be registered where you live, i.e. where you sleep most nights.
Use our e-service Flyttanmälan to report a change of address quickly and easily. All you need is electronic identification such as Mobile Bank-id.
