Shooting in Western Sahara  –   Journalists and producers are often misinformed about the working conditions in the great desert of southern Morocco despite its enormous potential, it is among the least visited regions in west Africa.

Admission of Television filming equipment in Morocco.

When coming to Morocco to film we recommend that you bring all your gear as accompanied baggage with you in the same flight and declare them to the Customs as temporary admission of equipment for temporary activity of a professional with no permanent resident status, and you can also use the ATA Carnet in Morocco.

In both cases you will need to have the official shooting permit to facilitate all procedures. (ATA Carnet is recognized in 85 countries and territories, Morocco is part of the system). In any case when you come to Morocco to film it’s better to hire a Moroccan production company to be the host company during the shootings, or to hire an independent local producer or fixer. We will be responsible for ensuring compliance to the legislation and for providing assistance for customs clearance of equipment as well as other forms of assistance.
