Today, the Governor signed Bill 323-33 into public law 33-165. The newly signed law aims to protect the island’s tourism industry by providing a framework for short-term vacation rentals on Guam.
“Tourism is the heartbeat of our economy and it’s important that we enforce regulations that will protect our visitors,” Governor Eddie Baza Calvo said. “This bill will ensure that our island’s residents who want to provide lodging options to our tourists meet the health and safety standards that our visitors deserve. By following the rules and regulatory practices, our island’s short term vacation rentals will provide for a better community.”

Introduced by Senator Tina Muna Barnes, the new law authorizes regulations for this growing trend in tourism.
“The ultimate goal of this law is to diversify our tourism industry while doing our utmost to protect the health, safety, and well-being of our visitors and our community,” Senator Barnes said. “We have to make sure that the required Hotel Occupancy Tax is being collected from transient visitors and owner-proprietors are not putting visitors, their neighbors, and themselves at risk.”
