Hungary simplifies shooting fees
The Act on Motion Picture – adopted by the Hungarian Parliament in autumn 2012 – entered into force at the beginning of January 2013. Regarding shooting permits the new Act includes the following:
- Permitting process regarding shooting on public places won’t take longer than 5 business days in Budapest,
- Simplified, ‘one-window’ submission process where permits for Budapest or for one country region of the country will be issued by only one authority (instead of submission obligation to different authorities depending on the specific district/town)
- Significant decrease of the public domain fees by introducing a new ‘zone system’, where even the highest rated zones (e.g. the world famous Buda Castle area and the historical downtown of Budapest) became less expensive.
Thanks to the new legislations, we are able to react even more quickly on your requests.
