Every Foreign Producer is legally obligated to request through their local Indonesian Embassy or Consulate permission to shoot film, video or still photography in Indonesia whether it be dramatic, non-theatrical, documentary, advertisement or promotional.


Visa & Film Permit

BFC can professionally handle processing the required paperwork for issuing the necessary permissions to film in Indonesia. The standard timeline for acquiring both a Journalist Visa and National Film Permit is 4 to 6 weeks. A visa is valid for 30 or 60 days and our office can extend it for you in-country. Local provincial, national park/conservation areas or filming of local objects/attractions may require additional permissions.

BFC will act as your required local sponsor in expediting this (often laborious) process.
