Last October 6th, ‘Mais Habitação‘ was published in the Diário da República, coming into effect on the 7th of October. With it, the issuance of new licenses for short-term rentals in Portugal was suspended in much of the national territory. However, there are exceptions, allowing the licensing of new short-term rentals under certain conditions:
- Properties located in interior territories as identified in the annex to Portaria No. 208/2017 (see below);
- Properties integrated into the Revive Nature Program;
- Properties located in the Autonomous Regions;
- Properties under total ownership – such as the majority of villas;
- Properties serving as permanent residences and whose exploitation will not exceed 120 days per year;
- Applications for licenses under the ‘rooms’ category.
