  • Could anyone advice us about the possible requirements for filming and Visa in Vietnam, Oman and Turkey? It is about a corporate video, and we need to shoot some city and landscapes in each country.

    With regards

    Hi. I am location manager in turkey. send me more details. . for me it is easy to get most of permitons.

    Hi Har Klunder,

    I understand that you come to Vietnam to film a corporate video.

    According to Vietnam law, you should apply for film permit.

    The (fee for) Film permit will cover the (fee for) Visa as well as customs clearance of equipment at the airport. Furthermore, most nationals are exept from VISA into Vietnam.

    In addition to fee for film permit, you will have to pay USD2 for taking picture at the airport (if you do not have photo with you).

    To apply for film permit, you should prepare:

    – Shooting schedule (incl shooting locations)
    – Synopsis of the show
    – List of equipment
    – Copy of passport of crew (first page)

    It’ll take around 5 days to issue a film permit.

    And last but not least, I am glad to assist you with this shooting in Vietnam (incl film permit application) at an affordable cost.

    Please drop me a line:

    Best regards,

    Abdullah Eksioglu
