You will need this registration to operate a commercial visitor accommodation business in the Northern Territory. A visitor accommodation business is one that provides accommodation for seven or more visitors for payment or reward.
Types of visitor accommodation that require registration include:
- serviced apartments
- roadside houses
- wayside inns
- backpacker accommodations
The visitor accommodation businesses cannot be subject to a tenancy agreement or a caravan park site agreement. Small bed and breakfasts, staff accommodation and student accommodation are not considered commercial visitor accommodation and do not need to apply for registration.
