Extending eMovingCH to the whole of Switzerland

The eService for registering a change of address online was successfully introduced in the majority of cantons by the end of 2019. The aim is to have eMovingCH available in all Swiss cantons by the end of 2021.

eMovingCH film

The electronic reporting process is clearly illustrated in the film «eMovingCH – the online reporting process» (available in German, French and Italian).

Target state

Full electronic handling of the moving process is currently not yet possible for the general public. More action is needed for expanding eMoving throughout Switzerland, in particular in the following areas: support for the implementation of eMoving in cantons and communes within the scope of cantonal projects, setting up and assurance of the operation of the eMovingCH solution, and elimination of various legal obstacles.

Measures supported in the implementation plan

Measures End date
Project management financing and support from the Association of Swiss Residential Services: application refinement and technical support from the communes and cantons. Meetings with suppliers on the implementation of the eCH standards. 31.12.2020
Acceptance and integration testing by those residents' registration offices that are not yet equipped for eMovingCH, provided that the suppliers make appropriate adjustments to the systems by 30 June 2021. 31.12.2021
Multilingual offering, advertising and communication: make the entire eMovingCH documentation available in German, French and Italian. 31.12.2020
New versions of eCH standards will be drawn up for refining eMovingCH further. 31.12.2020

Implementation status

eMovingCH is already in productive use in several cantons and their communes. Every day, more than 150 residents use the eMovingCH portal to report their move electronically.

The map of Switzerland below shows that further cantons are planning to introduce eMoving in cooperation with the communes in 2021.

As per June 2021

eMoving combined solution

The solution was developed by emineo for the canton of Zurich and subsequently made available to other cantons. Since January 2018, eMoving has been operated by the organisation eOperations Switzerland, which was set up in the context of a strategic eGovernment Switzerland project.

  • Axians
