Moving AbRoad Pilot
About The Pilot
Within the Digital Europe for All (DE4) program, the Moving Abroad pilot aims to reduce the administrative burden of moving to another European Member State. With the new Service, information is re-used cross-border which reduces the time to register. The entire preparation process is fully online and secure, using the authentication and authorization means of the home-country that are familiar to the citizen.
The advantage is obvious, as the current situation for changing domicile address and requesting civil status certificates to use in another country often takes weeks or months to complete, includes a lot of paperwork, and provides many language barriers. When using the pilot-solution, the effort required to complete the registration is reduced drastically for both the individual and the service provider. So a citizen can apply for a service much easier and the service provider spends less time on administrative issues.
