Notice to all Aurovilians about hosting Guests

Aurovilians hosting guests or volunteers in any residence, and receiving payments or contributions for that, need to be properly set up as a Home Stay. Please contact gfcg (at) for more information and an application form.

Aurovilians hosting only personal guests (i.e. friends, family members) who DO NOT make any financial payment/contribution to the host, do NOT need to become a Home Stay. For personal guests, a rate of Rs 150 /day is suggested as a contribution to Auroville’s City Services, which should be arranged through Financial Services.

ALL GUESTS in Auroville (including friends and family members, Indian nationals as well as foreigners) must register within 24 hours of their arrival. In addition, guests are required to register each time they move to a new destination in Auroville. Please note that Auroville is responsible to the RRO, police, etc. to maintain accurate registration information for all people staying in Auroville.

The Auroville Guest Registration Service operates at 3 locations:

  • Visitors Centre - at the far end of the Expo Hall (big white building on the left), opposite Dreamer's Cafe - All days 9:30-12:30 and 2:00-5:00
  • Town Hall - reception area - Monday-Saturday 9:30-12:30 and 2:00-4:30
  • Aspiration - Financial Service office left side - Monday-Saturday 9:00-12:30
