When you are reporting a change of address on behalf of a child, the child’s legal guardians must sign the form.
Meaning, if the child has two legal guardians, both must sign the change of address form. If only one of the child’s legal guardians has signed the change of address, a request is sent by regular post to the other legal guardian.
A quicker way of reporting the change of address is to use the e-service ‘Flyttanmälan’. When you do, the other legal guardian is given the opportunity to consent to the change of address for the child using the e-service ‘Lämna samtycke’ (Give consent). Remember that you must notify the other legal guardian that their consent is requested. The legal guardian can respond using the e-service within seven days from the time the change of address for the child was submitted.
Change your address in our e-service Flyttanmälan. Ony available in Swedish.
Do you not have electronic identification?
Children who have turned 16 are themselves entitled to report a change of address. This means that if the child is between the ages of 16 and 18, either the child themselves or their legal guardian(s) can sign the change of address.
