How regional policies affect listings created through software connections
Policies for your listings can differ depending on your city, county, state, province, territory, or country. Even if you’ve created your listings through your software, you still need to comply with these policies.
You can create listings through your software in North America, Latin America, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Africa, and Europe.
In Japan, we don’t accept listings created through software connections for places to stay (minpaku) used for Housing Accommodation Business under the Japanese Housing Accommodation Business Act (Act No.65 of 2017). The only exception to the policy is for Japanese API partners who have entered into the license agreement with regard to Airbnb brand and intellectual properties within Japan
Traditional hospitality policies

City registration policies
City registration is required by Airbnb for some cities. Listings in those cities won’t be published until the Host completes the registration process for each listing.
To complete the process, you’ll need to enter your existing registration details, your exemption details, or submit a registration application to the city via Airbnb. You can enter your existing registration or exemption details via your software if it supports that feature. If your software doesn’t support it, you must complete the registration on Airbnb manually for each listing.
