In order to simplify the procedures for local and foreign filmmakers to apply for filming in Macao, the Cultural Affairs Bureau (IC), in collaboration with nine public services, launched the trial Co-ordination Service for Filming Permit Application on 31st May. The trial service concludes at the end of this year. IC is serving as the responsible public service receiving all filming applications, referring such applications to the participating public services in the network for follow-up.
The Co-ordination Service for Filming Permit Application involves ten public services: the Macao Government Tourism Office, the Sports Bureau, the Customs Service, the Fire Services Bureau, the Public Security Police Force, the Judiciary Police, the Transport Bureau, the Civil Aviation Authority, the Marine and Water Bureau, and the Cultural Affairs Bureau.
IC serves as the responsible public service in receiving all filming applications submitted by filmmakers and provides services such as consultation, application guidelines, application collection, document referral, enquiries, and online enquiries about application status; while participating public services in the network will contact applicants directly with regard to response to filming applications.
