The amendment to Act CLVI of 2016 on State Functions Pertaining to the Development of Tourism Regions entered into effect on 1 January 2021. The amendment requires accommodation providers to store the data specified by law from accommodation service users in the data storage location designated by the Government for the purposes specified in the Act.
The hosting service provider specified by the Government is the Hungarian Tourism Agency (HTA).
The HTA’s hosting tasks introduced in the amendment are performed by the Closed Guest Information Database system (Vendég Információs Zárt Adatbázis, VIZA).
The accommodation provider uses the PMS connected to an ID scanner to submit separate guest data for each accommodation to the VIZA system, in electronic format. The data are forwarded by the storage space forwarding module integrated into the PMS.
The range of PMS able to communicate with the VIZA system and certified by the Hungarian Tourism Agency (HTA), as the hosting service provider designated by the Government, is continuously expanding. If you work in the production, sale or development of PMS in Hungary and would like to check whether your product can communicate with the VIZA system, please contact the customer service for software developers using the details provided.
Connection consists of the following steps:
Please complete the datasheet for requesting a PMS−THF−VIZA test connection, which is required for accessing the developer’s test environment.
After the datasheet requesting a PMS−THF−VIZA test connection is received, you will be sent a reply containing information on how to access the test environment, your unique ID, the data submission (storage space forwarding) module to be installed, and the exact validation test process.
After submitting the datasheet for requesting a PMS−THF−VIZA test connection, download the developer’s guide
The PMS is configured by the software manufacturer for accommodation providers. For certain systems, this may require on-site action. During the connection process, manufacturers are assigned a unique ID which must be used when setting up and configuring the data submission (storage space forwarding) module.
In accommodations, only PMS with a connection to an ID scanner may be used, provided that it operates in accordance with the requirements for submitting data to the VIZA system.
The accommodation service provider shall use the PMS to submit the data required by law for each accommodation site to the VIZA system, in electronic format and in encrypted form. The data are forwarded by the storage space forwarding module integrated into the PMS. The PMS maintains automatic network communication with the VIZA system using a secure channel.
