Overview:

In Colombia, there is a system to register guest data for statistical purposes, called “Tarjeta de Registro de Alojamiento” (TRA) or: Accommodation Registration Card. It is mandatory for all accommodation establishments to register all of their guests (national and international) as a measure to improve security and provide the Commerce, Industry and Tourism Ministry statistical data on the travel industry.

In this article we will show you how to set this up in Chekin so that you can streamline guest data reporting from tourist accommodations in compliance with national regulations.
