Jordan is a very film friendly country and has recently become popular as a location for high-budget feature filmmakers.
Although Jordan may not yet offer filmmakers infrastructure such as studios, film labs and equipment hire, the country has been able to appeal to international productions due to its accommodating government, its safety and political stability, and its stunning and versatile locations.
The Jordanian government has proved to be very open to working with high-budget productions to help ensure that they can access everything they need whilst filming in Jordan.
The government and the RFC work closely to ensure that filmmakers are assisted with location scouting and subsequently any public sites or locations that filmmakers wish to use are highly likely to be issued with permits free of charge. Private locations can prove slightly more of a challenge and fees may be involved but permits and permissions are unlikely to be refused.
There are some equipment rental services.
The government offers exemptions for filmmakers bringing equipment into the country, meaning that costs are kept down. Custom clearance is also fast, making the process relatively painless. Please ask us how we can assist you with all the necessary documentation.
