The ANCINE permit for filming in Brazil
What is the ANCINE?
Foreign production companies that intend to film a project in Brazil needs to get this permit from the ANCINE before traveling to Brazil. Only works with journalistic nature are exempt from this requirement.
The ANCINE registration/permit is also used as a prior authorization letter to obtain the business visa at the Brazilian embassy or consulate, for those countries that do not have a business visa waiver agreement.
How to get the ANCINE permit?
To start this process of getting the authorization from ANCINE, it is necessary, first of all, to have a local partner. Only Brazilian production companies registered at the ANCINE can carry out this procedure, with the inclusion of the following documents:
1) a contract between the foreign production company and the Brazilian production company; (if you do it with us, our partnership will be restricted to providing the contracted services, without any influence or rights over the material produced in Brazil);
2) A provisional shooting plan, with the indication of dates and locations where the work will take place;
3) And also a copy of the identification sheets from the passport of each foreign professional.
*It is important to keep in mind the legal deadline to obtain this registration, which is at minimum 5 working days.
