Filming Permissions in Burundi

Burundi Film Location Permits

Most locations are possible given time, money, and the right approach. Unauthorized filming, photography, or any other recording of government buildings, military installations, and critical infrastructures such as airports and border controls, is illegal. Penalties may include arrest, fines, and confiscation of your equipment. Please contact us for location-specific information.

Burundi, unlike Kenya, Uganda, and Rwanda, there are little filming activities taking place. Location scouting is possible with Film crew fixers, but it needs time, money, and the right approach. All those interested in processing filming permissions to shoot in Burundi should approach us in time for us to assist you. Let us discuss your project here.

Please let us know when you intend to film in Burundi so that we start processing your filming permits. Shooting without permission may result in fines or confiscation of your filming equipment. There is also a possibility of imprisoning your film crew members as well as your fixer of the day. While in the field, avoid taking videos and photos of military and security offices or buildings, government structures including border posts, and the Airport.
