Tourist accommodation: in force as of 24/04/2016
Guest rooms, studios, tourist residences, youth hostels, camping sites, hotels, etc. All tourist accommodations in the Brussels-Capital Region are now subject to a regulation. Everyone who runs or wishes to run this type of accommodation must fulfill a series of general and specific requirements. Among other things, a prior declaration file must be submitted to Brussels Economy and Employment so as to have the accommodation registered in one of the defined categories. People who already ran their establishment prior to 24/04/2016 can benefit from transitional measures to put things in order. The others must conform to the regulation before they can start running their tourist accommodation business.
