SAN ANTONIO -- The deadline to acquire a permit for short-term rentals with the City’s Development Services Department is Monday, February 11.

  • Deadline for STR permit is Monday, February 11

A separate permit, valid for three years, is required per individual unit. To apply for a permit, an account for the Hotel Occupancy Tax needs to be set up with the City’s Finance Department.
