After re-watching Naruto: Shippuden with Kushina's history, I've noticed that on her wiki page that

At a young age she was sent to Konoha and enrolled in the Academy.

Kushina was an exception since she didn't move to the village but was sent there to become the next nine tails jinchūriki.

But I guess that if someone decided to move to another the village he would need to talk to the Kage and be accepted.
