Villa Check In provide VV Licenses and guest Passport Scanning Services for Independent Rental Property Owners and Property Management Companies
Villa Check In is a family-owned and operated business that was founded in 2019 in response to the growing need for rental property owners and property management companies to comply with Spanish regulations regarding the registration of their properties and guests. Prior to 1974, ID registration was only required for hotels, but the Guardia Civil subsequently extended this requirement to all holiday rental properties on the Canary Islands and the Peninsular.
As a result, Villa Check In was established to assist independent rental property owners and property management companies in meeting these legal obligations and maintaining compliance with the law. The company offers a comprehensive, managed service to help clients navigate the process of registering their properties and guests with the authorities, ensuring that they are fully compliant with all relevant regulations.
It is important to collect passport and ID details of guests arriving in Spain and staying in a holiday rental property for a variety of reasons.
First and foremost, collecting this information is necessary for compliance with local laws and regulations. In Spain, property owners and managers are required to register all guests with the police within 24 hours of their arrival. This is known as the "registration of foreigners," and it helps authorities track the movements of non-Spanish citizens within the country. By collecting passport and ID details, property owners and managers can ensure that they are able to comply with this requirement and avoid potential fines or other legal consequences.
In addition to being a legal requirement, collecting passport and ID details can also help protect the safety and security of guests. By verifying the identity of guests, property owners and managers can ensure that only authorized individuals are staying in their rental properties. This can help prevent unauthorised persons from gaining access to the property or potentially causing harm to other guests.
Furthermore, collecting passport and ID details can also help protect the interests of property owners and managers. In the event that a guest causes damage to the property or engages in any other inappropriate behavior, having their passport and ID information on file can make it easier to hold them accountable and seek compensation if necessary.
Finally, collecting passport and ID details can also help improve the overall guest experience. By having this information on file, property owners and managers can provide a more personalized and efficient service to guests, as they will have access to important details such as names, ages, and nationalities. This can help make guests feel more welcome and comfortable during their stay.
