Goa Tourism Registration for Airbnb Hosts

Hello, Just wondering, from what i have been hearing, it is now mandatory to register your rental (Apartment/Bungalow) with Goa Tourism. Does anyone have a clue as to what the requirements are clearly and how to go about the same. Any assistance is much appreciated

Thank You

The rules have now changed. In accordance with 'Ease of doing business', a lot of requirements have been discarded ( since May 2022).


So one has to log in to the goaonline site from the Government of Goa, and click in the tourism department link. There you will find how to go about and register your home as either homestay ( if the guest lives with you in your house) or as guest house ( if the guest lives in your independent villa without your presence).

Hi @Nash66 @Angela2413 @Divinia0 I'm a little late in getting to this post, but would like to hear from you if you've been able to get any details about registering with Goa tourism. I did my research and found that these regulations are applicable only for homestays, meaning that if you're staying in a property and would like to host tourists in the same property, you need to register with Goa tourism.


In case either of you has come across any more regulations, I'd request you to drop a message on this community for others to benefit by the information.
