1.) You can file for de-registration either in person or through the post or be delivered by a person you trust. However, de-registrations via fax or e-mail are currently not permitted by law.
De-registrations of minors must be carried out by their parents or legal guardians or those who are entitled to care for them. Custodians [Sachwalterinnen/Sachwalter] are required to carry out the de-registration for mentally handicapped persons as long as this procedure is part of their field of action. In cases where there are no such people the accommodation providers must carry out the de-registration.
2.) To apply for de-registration you will need to fill in the residence registration form [Meldezettel-Formular] which makes it possible for the registration authorities to enter the registration data into the register. This form can be downloaded and it is available at registration authorities. Furthermore, it is available at some tobacconists.
A separate residence registration form must be filled in for each person who wants to carry out de-registration. The accommodation provider's signature is not required for de-registration.
3.) You will receive a written confirmation of de-registration [Besttigung der Abmeldung].

Need for the Document
De-registration with the competent registration authority [Meldebehrde] must be done when persons gives up their accommodation in an Austrian residence.
If a new principal residence is registered, the authority competent for the new principal residence is able to carry out the de-registration or the change of registration [Ummeldung] of the former residence together with the registration [Anmeldung] of the new residence. In this case separate de-registration is not required.
Registering and de-registering is very important because although no accommodation is established or the existing accommodation is not given up, it is still considered an administrative offence which can result in a fine of up to 726 Euro. Should the offence be repeated, the fine can be up to 2.180 Euro.
