Have you recently moved to an EU country and must register your residence?
Let's see what procedure you have to follow!
WHAT HAPPENED IN THE FIRST 3 MONTHS?
During the first three months of your stay in your new country, as an EU national, you cannot be required to apply for a residence document confirming your right to live there - although, in some countries, you may have to report your presence upon arrival.
Some EU countries require you to report your presence to the relevant authorities (often the town hall or local police station) within a reasonable period after arrival and may impose a penalty, such as a fine if you fail to do so.
If you are staying in a hotel, it is usually enough to fill in a particular form - the hotel will take care of the rest. All you need to report your presence as an EU national is your identity card or passport; if you are accompanied by family members who are not EU nationals, they will need a visa. It would be best if you did not have to pay any fees.
AFTER 3 MONTHS?
After three months in your new country, you may be required to register your residence with the relevant authority (often the town hall or local police station) and to be issued a registration certificate.
You will need a valid identity card or passport and:
Proof you can support yourself without needing income support: resources may come from any source.
Proof of comprehensive health insurance declaration that you have sufficient resources to support yourself without needing income support: resources may come from any source
REGISTRATION AND CERTIFICATE
When you register, you will get a registration certificate. This certificate confirms your right to live in your new country.
Your registration certificate should be issued immediately and cost no more than the price nationals pay for identity cards.
It should be valid indefinitely (it does not have to be renewed), though any change of address may need to be reported to the local authorities.
If you are required to register, you may be fined for not doing so but may continue to live in the country and cannot be expelled just for this.
In many countries, you will need to carry your registration certificate, national identity card, or passport. If you leave them home, you may be fined but cannot be expelled just for this.
