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 accommodation
Small bed and breakfasts, staff accommodation, and student accommodation are not considered commercial visitor accommodation and do not need to apply for registration. Visitor accommodation businesses that are subject to a tenancy or caravan park site agreement also do not need to apply for registration.
