tips for filming docs in egypt ,budget consultancy
as a fixer in Egypt , I would be happy to give you initial tips for filming dox in Egypt.
- the press center in Egypt is the only authority in charge of issuing filming permits for dox, they offer this service for free .
- Normally , permits process takes around 10 days to get them done .
- Requested papers : your filming request should includes a short presentation about your company , summary of your project , exact locations and finally the names , jobs and passport numbers of the crew .
- the most requested paper is a bank guarantee letter that covers at least 50% of the equipments total price , otherwise tou will have your equipments confiscated at cairoairport customs .
N.B you better bring the gaurantee letter from your country ... egyptian banks take much money for this service .
