Decree 12/2017, of 26th January, which establishes the organisation of tourist apartments, holiday housing and vacation rentals in the Autonomous Community of Galicia (in Spanish)

Requirements and registration procedure

The Xunta de Galicia regulates tourist lets (Viviendas de Uso Turístico) and requires that they appear in the Register of Tourist Businesses and Activities of the Autonomous Community of Galicia (Registro de Empresas y Actividades Turísticas de la Comunidad Autónoma de Galicia). To register your tourist accommodation, you must present an affidavit and ensure that the property complies with a series of requirements:

– stays of no longer than 30 days.
– that you don’t rent room by room.
– there must be heating in every room.

To ensure that you meet all these requirements and to learn more about the registration process, we recommend that you consult this section which aims to clear up the main doubts and questions about tourist lets (in Spanish).

You can also contact the Tourism Agency.
