Update For Property Owners – New System

Property owners who holiday let their Lanzarote properties have been required for some time to register guests staying, together with their passport information. Currently this information is submitted to the Guardia Civil.

Spain’s Ministry of the Interior is launching a new, national system to collect this data going forward, and from January 2024, the old Guardia Civil system will no longer be an option. In the meantime, the two are running in parallel, but it’s important that owners or their agents switch to the new system within the next few months.

The new system is called SES Hospedajes (https://sede.mir.gob.es/opencms/export/sites/default/es/procedimientos-y-servicios/hospedajes-y-alquiler-de-vehiculos/) and it requires owners or their agents to have either a digital certificate or an advanced Cl@ve, which is a digital signature, to register their properties, and also asks for more information about guests than previously, including:

  • Home address
  • Passport details including all minors
  • Where the property was advertised
  • Payment details

For those who are unable to do this themselves, we’re happy to recommend Villa Check-In, a locally based company who can take care of every step of the process. Using them, there is no need to apply for a Cl@ve and install it on your computer, as they will use their own, and they will handle everything from contacting the guests and chasing them for their information, to ensuring the details are correctly loaded into the new system.

They have a one-off registration fee of €45 per property and they charge based on your property bedroom count starting from €12.50.
