About filming and journalistic coverage
Cuba is a socialist country, and it is the national institution that issues permits for filming and coverage, which makes it impossible for individuals to obtain permissions. For that reason, it is very important to connect with local press centers and state-owned companies that act on behalf of permission applications.
Our agency has a close network with these institutions based on trust and professionalism, and it has been strengthened by through the years.
Shooting in Cuba has many special points regarding the method of applying for a shooting permit and the method of shooting itself that have to be taken into account.
We have local staffs stationed at our company so that we have a possibility of having direct contact and support with our clients.
How long does it take to be able to travel to Cuba and carry out a project?
At first, please obtain a press visa from the Cuban Embassy in your country. (it may take 1-2 weeks) The application for filming permit can start in Cuba after the issuance of the press visa is confirmed. Depending on the volume of requests, destination, and the timing, it may take up to a month for the approval, so it is recommended that you have enough time for the whole precess.
How much is the estimated cost for shoot/interview project?
To work in Cuba costs higher than in other Latin American countries. Accommodation, meals and transportation charges are almost the same as in developed countries. Please be aware that shooting fees and permission application fees at each location will be slightly high as well. Since we are a local travel agency, we are able to offer varieties of categories of accommodations, transportations, meals, etc. throughout the country according to your budgets.
