Thinking of renting out your home in Qatar? Consider renting your property to travelers as holiday homes in one of the various platforms that offer vacation homes and holiday rentals. In an effort to promote the concept of a safe and enjoyable experience of holiday homes in Qatar, Qatar Tourism introduces the Holiday Home Regulation Programme. 

Apartment, villa owners, or renters in tourist hotspots or standalone villas in other areas would be able to apply for a license and undergo a classification process based on certain requirements that include quality standards, amenities, health and safety regulations, accessibility criteria, code of conduct and environmental sustainability.

What do you need to know?

When applying for a license, a self-assessment form is required to be completed and submitted with the License Issuance application. This process guarantees that international best practices are adopted by homeowners, offering transparency, safety, and consistency to the sector as well as peace of mind to visitors seeking to explore and experience the unparalleled hospitality of Qatar.
