The most important place to start when planning a shoot in Qatar

Navigating permits and the right authorities in Qatar can be a challenge. Nothing moves quickly, so preparation and ample time are key. Let’s get started.


Permits in Qatar are extremely important. Obtaining a general shooting permit and a release to bring in equipment for shoots can mean the difference between a great shoot and jail time. The Qatar authorities take the permits very seriously. We do too. We know how to get them and how to check all the right blocks to make sure your production and your team steer clear of any unnecessary setbacks.


Plan ahead. Permits also don’t happen quickly. It can take up to 25 days for a general shooting permit to be released. When you are ready to get this process started, contact us. We will start the permit process for you for free, and only charge the permit fee if the project goes forward. There are a couple of prerequisites to make this work, so contact us to the process started.


There are special permits needed for various special shooting situations. Want to film in the sea? Looking to get into a very specialized location? We will navigate the various authorities and get the right permissions to get you set up for success.


Visas in Qatar can be a moving target. With the fluctuating politics in the region and around the world, certain countries may be allowed one day and not allowed the next. We keep our ear to the ground constantly for updated information, and we are happy to share what we know. Reach out to us for more information and to get your visa process started.
