Change of address

All citizens in Greenland are registered in the Civil Registration System (CPR). The system contains information about each citizen including their current address. Therefore you are obliged to notify your (new) municipality of residence when you change your address.

If you move to Greenland or if you move from one location in Greenland to another you need to:
  • Complete the change of address form
  • And submit it to the local municipal citizen service centre at the city or settlement you have moved to. You must submit no later than 5 days after you have changed your address

If you move to Greenland from a Nordic Country other than Denmark you need to bring:
