  1. Apply for National Filming Permits from the Ministry of Information & Communication

Most independent or unverified Production Companies, Line-Producers or fixers will always try to prevent coordinating with the Ministry of Information & Communication and other relevant government bodies.

The reasons are varying from lack of “Legal Registration” all the way over to “Not being applicable to apply for National Filming Permits” due to lack of credits and experience.

“Most Local Producers” will always have to “Okay with anything attitude” which will generally cause more problems while the production is on set.

If there are any independent companies or individuals that approach your production and are suggesting that “National Filming Permits” aren’t necessary then please make sure it’s a big “NO” from you because not having a “National Filming Permit” and a “Liaison Officer” on set can have major downsides such as the following points listed below:

  • Filming Equipment being ceased by police
  • All footage being taken
  • Being black-listed and reported

Having all matters sorted legally will make sure you have your production completed smoothly, and safety goes a very long way.

2. National Filming Permits only cost $150 in total, but there are additional costs for Liaison Officers

Most production companies or fixers will over-charge productions and filming crews that don’t have any idea of filming permits and costs.

This is where the budget actually increases and when they have no clue how expensive it can be if the duration of your production is set for more than “10-15 days” in total.

National Filming Permits can be acquired for exactly “NRS 15,000” which is equivalent to “USD 150” (check today rate of USD to NRS) including basic documentation charges but the real expense comes to production value when you have a “Liaison Officer” on set, which is compulsory and charges anywhere from “USD 100-150” per day so make sure your production partner are strong negotiators which will go a long way in terms of having a trustworthy partner in Nepal and also most importantly lowering your production costs.
