The number of new requests for Local Accommodation (AL) licences has dropped significantly.

According to newspaper Correio da Manhã, citing figures from Tourism Portugal, new requests for a licence have dropped by 40 percent, bolstered by cancellations.

Lisbon currently houses one in every five registered Local Accommodation establishments, at around 18,000 properties.
