If individuals or professional operators are planning to rent out an apartment or villa for holiday lets, they need to register with DET. Our Holiday Homes system provides access to a range of services and facilitates guest check-in and check-out.
Registration in HH units:
- For operators: the trade licence listed activity should be Vacation Homes Rental.
- For owners: the name on the account must match the name on the unit tittle deed.
For tenants: the name on the account must match the name on the tenancy contract.
- If you are a tenant, a maximum of one unit can be registered and you will need prior landlord approval.
Essential information such as trade licence should be updated on an annual basis. There is no renewal fee applicable.
Users who don't have a valid Emirates ID should enter their passport number in the mandatory Emirates ID field after adding 0's to reach a 15-digit combination in total.
