- - There are no formal incentive programmes in place at present. Significant projects will be evaluated on a case by case basis.
However, the Tunisian government will assist with army personnel (extras/workers), army equipment (helicopters etc), the use of government buildings and property as locations and reduced hotel costs.
Tunisia is also willing to help out (incentives, rather than cash with hotels, transport etc) on projects that are of proven promotional interest to the country. Please contact the production service company you are interested in working with, who in turn will contact the various government departments on your behalf.
