Fine for Incorrect Registration in the Municipality

Local authorities will be able to fine people who refuse to submit their correct address or other personal information or who do not register with the municipality at all. Next year the State Secretary of the Ministry of Interior will propose a bill regulating this requirement. Citizens will be required to submit correct and up to date personal information, for example a change of address or a birth. Some people purposely give a wrong address in order to receive social benefits or rent subsidy. Until now local authorities did not have the means to enforce this, but next year they might be able to catch people who are trying to cheat.
