How to Apply for a Tourist License

Tenerife International Business Centre SL based in Las Galletas, Tenerife have launched a new service for property owners in the Canary Islands looking to rent out their properties for holiday lets.

The process of the application is made in two steps - one to check eligibility of your property so it doesn't raise awareness to the authorities and the second is the actual application process. Local town halls ARE now issueing Touristic Licenses to private property owners. However, if your property is next to a hotel or on a community which does not give you permission to rent out your proprety as a holiday let, your property will not be granted a Tourist License.

The fees charged by TIBC SL are 473 Euros and if your application is unsuccessful, most of this is refunded along with paperwork supplied. For information on external fees and for more information on the process of gaining a Touristic License for your property in Tenerife, Fuerteventura and any other of the Canary Islands, visit this link.
