  • Hello!
    We are an Austrian film company and we are planning to film in PNG in the next months.
    We are looking for some advise with the organization of a shooting in this region?
    Do we need any permits if we are working with a specific company?
    Is there any specific points we need to be aware of filming in PNG?
    Are drones allowed?
    Thanks for your support.
    Looking forward to reading you!
    Best regards,


    Murray Ashton
