Filming In Turkey

A beautiful country, which mixes old and new in the city of Istanbul along with picturesque landmarks such as the Blue Mosque and the Grand Bazaar, Turkey has a number of rich and cultural filming locations.  

I want to shoot, but how easy is it to get permits for filming and fixers in Turkey?
It’s usually very easy, but any historical site has to be processed by the municipality. Typically speaking though, permits usually take two weeks. If you wish to find out about filming at specific historical sites, please do contact us directly.  

Do I need a visa or work permit?
You are required to carry a film visa upon your entry into Turkey. If you wish to film in a public area, you’ll need permission from the Ministry of Culture and Tourism. If you’re looking to film in a historical location, local directorates will grant permission, which will typically take 10 days.     

Can I hire equipment once there?
Turkey only has very basic equipment, so you would have to import specialist equipment if needed. Thanks to their central location, it’s incredibly easy to import from nearby European countries.  

What is the climate like?
Turkey generally is a very mild country with scorching hot summers between June – September. Winters can be surprisingly cold and wet, particularly in the mountains. If you need near perfect weather, April – May and October – November are the best months to film.
