The province is making it easy for people to update their addresses with government departments.

The option for an online address change has been expanded to include Medicare and motor vehicle services.

A valid Medicare card is required for online applicants, who must also upload supporting documentation.

It’s recommended applicants review the list of requirements and acceptable documentation before beginning their application.

Each online address change request can accommodate up to six members of one household.

It will be processed by a Service New Brunswick agent during regular business hours.

An address change request for a Medicare card will be completed within five business days with no new cards will be issued.

When making an address change request for medicare, applicants will be prompted to update their address for motor vehicle services.

New Brunswickers can expect to receive a 30-day driver’s licence in the mail within 15 business days of submission. A new, standard driver’s licence should arrive in the mail soon after.

Updated vehicle registrations should arrive in the mail within 15 business days.

You must still apply in person at a Service New Brunswick service centre if:

  • same-day service is required
  • you do not have a valid New Brunswick Medicare card
  • you are from out of province
  • you are changing your legal name
  • you are applying on behalf of a New Brunswick company or business registered in New Brunswick
  • the address change is for a New Brunswick identification card
  • there is a motor vehicle suspension on file
