I have booked an apartment via booking.com and today i got an email saying:
Hello & Servus from Vienna! According to the Austrian Law you have to register all arriving guests: GUEST REGISTRATION Please note that there is no reception at the apartment. Unregistered guests do not get access to the apartment. Thank you in advance.
Does this law exist?
I ask because I don't want to give my information to a random person for no reason. The website they send me to is https://www.my-bookings.cc just with some ID so it looks like my apartment room. I need to input my name, address in my home country, passport ID.
One thing that is suspicious to me is that the domain is
.cc. If it is by law in Austria shouldn't the government register it under the Austrian domain name?
