To film in Tunisia you will need a general film permit from the Tunisian Ministry of Culture. The process is straightforward as we have been doing it 20+ years and have excellent relations with the authorities. Some basic information from your side and ours is required. The permit can be acquired in a few days and is issued in both our names. Once you have this you are free to work in this country, and film in public locations. 


If you would like to bring in a professional camera to the country, shoot in a protected area, such as one of the many archeological sites or forts, or with a drone you will need other permits that we can also procure for you. 

Covid-19 update: Tunisia is open to film crews with one of the lowest Covid 19 rates in the world. International borders opened the 27th June. The EU considers Tunisia a 'green' country Tunisia considers the US a'red' country and the UK an 'orange' country meaning a negative PCR test is required to enter. Most EU countries are considered 'green' ie no restrictions on travel. All our crew take the Safe Sets™ COVID-19 Certificate to ensure we stay and keep others, healthy. We have established a clear protocol wish we are happy to share with our clients.

There is a reason we are the only company in Tunisia to be part of the BBC preferred-users list. We aim to make your work here as smooth and comfortable as possible, making sure you get what you need, however simple or complicated your shoot.
