Qatar: Holiday Home Rental Regulations Issued

The Peninsula, 6 September 2021: Qatar Tourism has issued new holiday home rental regulations.

They are aimed at regulating the operation of holiday homes owned by individuals. They are also aimed at providing a complete licensing and classification process and ensuring international best practices are adopted.

This will increase transparency, safety and standardisation in the sector.

Homeowners have to apply for a license, including quality standards, amenities, health and safety, accessibility criteria, code of conduct and environmental sustainability.

They have announced they have also upgraded their system to support the new license applications for owners and authorised tenants who can now apply for a Holiday Homes license through the e-Services portal.

They will carry out frequent inspections to ensure compliance.
