San Diego, CA

Legal Disclaimer: When deciding whether to become an Airbnb host, it is important for you to understand the laws in your region or city. As a platform and online marketplace, we do not provide legal advice, but we want to provide resources that may help you better understand applicable laws and regulations. This list is not exhaustive, but it may give you a good start in understanding your local laws. If you have questions, contact government agencies directly, or consult a local lawyer or tax professional.

Host License Requirement

If you only host for 31 days or more at a time, you do not need a license number or a tax number to publish your listing.

If you host for 1 to 30 days at a time, you are required to add a short-term residential occupancy license (STRO) and a Transient Occupancy Tax number (TOT) to your listing.

Step 1: Obtain a Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) number

  • Create an account.
  • Pro-tip: Airbnb collects and remits transient occupancy tax for the City of San Diego listings. A TOT number is only needed because it is a required field in Step 2’s license application.

Step 2: Obtain a short-term rental license

Step 3: Once you receive your license and TOT number, add them to your Airbnb listing.

Government Contact Information 

We recommend reviewing these general FAQs or the STRO license application FAQs. 

For specific questions, contact the City of San Diego at or call 619-533-6489.

License Eligibility

How do I know if my listing’s address requires a license number?

Confirm if your address is within the geographic boundaries of the City of San Diego (colored districts on map).

If your address is outside the colored districts, you do not need to get a license for your listing. The City of San Diego short term rental ordinance does not apply to you.

Who is eligible to get a license?

The City of San Diego has four license options for Hosts to apply for, with each tier having different eligibility requirements.

Here is a guide and video tutorial to help determine the best license tier for your listing. Get more information on tiers.

Pro-tip: A Host may only hold one short-term rental license for one dwelling unit at a time.

Who is exempt from getting a license?

If you have a motel or hotel listing, you are exempt and do not need to obtain a license. You can claim your exemption on your listing. It only takes a few minutes.

License Process

How long does it take to get your license number?

After you submit your application and pay the fee, you typically receive a license number shortly thereafter (often within 1 business day) via email.

Note: The license turnaround time can vary depending on the volume of submitted applications.

How much does a STRO license cost?

Fees vary depending on what type of Tier license you apply for. Licenses are valid for 2 years from date of issuance.

Is there a registration step by step guide?

Here is a registration guide from the City of San Diego.
