Film Fixers Kenya




The visa application process when filming on location differs from country to country. The visa type depends on the intended length of stay which is always clearly defined on the Kenya’s visa application websites. Documentation to have on hand before embarking on the visa applications include: A brief synopsis of the film, a copy of the bio page of your passport valid for no less than 30 days after the expiry date of intended visit, passport photos, a letter of invitation from the local production company in the country you plan to film in, your flight itinerary, proof of accommodation in the country you intend to visit, yellow fever card, proof of covid vaccination. In some cases, you might require a letter from the company you will be representing on the film production. 


When traveling to a Kenya to film on location, it is best that the international film production company handle their own flights, however all local flights should be booked by the Line Producer or Film Fixer in Kenya.


Our Line Producers highly recommend that all hotel accommodation for our visiting film crews be handled by either our local film production manager or in the case that the international production manager prefer to book hotel accommodation for their film crews directly, they request us to vet the film crew accommodation.


All local transport for film crews and film equipment is arranged by our local Film Fixers and includes the cost of a driver and insurance.
