Several Austrian municipalities are currently reporting that citizens are deregistering their place of residence in order not to appear in a comparison of the vaccination register with the population register. But this can have serious consequences – including fines of up to 2180 euros in the event of a repeat offense.
So if someone now deregisters their place of residence but continues to live there, which is particularly noticeable in smaller communities, they not only have to expect a complaint and a fine – they also lose all kinds of entitlements, such as social benefits such as family allowance or the parking sticker Vienna. The registration of the vehicle is also linked to a place of residence in Austria. In addition, banks can terminate the account or the employer can terminate the employment relationship.
According to a “Kurier” report, the Austrian Association of Municipalities cannot yet assess the consequences of a series of residence deregistrations because this is a “novelty”. However, this much is clear: there would be a large number of administrative penal proceedings – with further unforeseen consequences.
