Registrations of holiday homes have shot up over the past couple of years. | Archive
There is a government department which is dedicated to "tourist stays". This department within the tourism ministry has been inundated over recent months with declarations by those who want to register holiday properties. There were more in the first nine months of this year (10,367) than in the whole of 2015 (8,030), though a "boom" in requests has existed since 2014. In the summer of that year, the ministry was said to have been "saturated" with applications.
