Getting Film Permits In Egypt
Once you decide on filming in Egypt, you will most likely set your eyes on some of the most impressive spots.

Film permits are usually obtained from one of the following ministries. These are the Ministry of the Interior, the Ministry of Tourism, or the one of Defense. Depending on the chosen location, additional approval can be necessary. For better local cooperation, filmmakers should get the permission of tribe heads. Film permits can take between three days to two weeks to get processed and approved.

Tax Rebate & Cash Incentives For Filming In Egypt
Rich in stunning scenery but torn by internal conflicts. The land of pharaohs has an impressive film industry that exploits its massive sets. However, foreign filmmakers have been rather cautious about filming in Egypt. Slowly regaining its stability, the country is welcoming and has one of the lowest costs for a shoot day. Compared to other Middle East locations, here you get budget-friendly offers. Rely on a local production fixer like us to assist in negotiation. You can get convenient rates for most of the services.
Talking about the support received by the film industry, here is what you should know. At the moment, tax incentives are not granted to any foreign production company. So, if you are filming a commercial or feature film in Egypt, you do not benefit from any incentives. However, the Egyptian Media Production City has a special offer. As the country’s main film and TV hub, it grants a 30% cash rebate on-site. In addition, 20% can be also given for some off-site expenses. Throughout the filming process, exemptions apply for project imports, sales, or taxes. This proves highly valuable for any production company that is filming on a tight budget.
