Businesses looking to offer visitor accommodation over the next two years have been urged to register.
The registration deadline is January 25th.
By this point providers including hotels, metro hotels, self-catering units, guest accommodation, guest houses, bed and breakfasts, farm-stays, inns, restaurants with rooms, serviced apartments, campsites, and hostels are all required to register with the Department for Enterprise.
MHK Rob Callister has responsibility for Visit Isle of Man – he says: “It is essential that the department helps protect the Island’s reputation as a first-class visitor destination and drive the growth of our visitor economy.
“The range of registration services the department offers give our visitors confidence in the quality and facilities of all accommodation provided here in the Isle of Man.
“The mandatory registration of accommodation in the Isle of Man is an important way of ensuring essential standards are upheld, including adherence to fire safety and inclusion of the appropriate insurance.
“Any businesses or individuals receiving payment for accommodation services must be registered.
“I would encourage any businesses or individuals who aren’t sure if they hold the correct registrations to get in touch with Visit Isle of Man at the department who can provide advice and additional support.”
