the registration number becomes mandatory in Paris

By the end of 2021, guest registration will apply to several major French cities.

Parisian owners wishing to rent on Airbnb must, from July 1, enter the registration number obtained from the town hall, the Californian platform indicated in a press release.

This measure is part of the Airbnb commitments “for responsible tourism” taken in February from Emmanuelle Wargon, Minister of Housing. In addition, the authorities of the City of Paris will wait access to the Airbnb portal for cities “In order to facilitate their mission of monitoring compliance with local regulations,” the statement continued.

By the end of 2021, mandatory guest registration will apply to other major French cities: Bordeaux on July 30 and Lyon on September 30, followed by Lille, Marseille, Nantes, Nice, Strasbourg and Toulouse.
