Guidelines for Filming in Portugal

The Portugal Film Commission released a document with guidelines intended to give advice to anyone planning to work or participate in filming in Portugal.

The current COVID-19 pandemic has affected a diversity of sectors of economic activity, including cinema and audiovisual. However, with the foreseeable lifting of restrictive measures and the state of emergency, filming in Portugal will have to be resumed, keeping in mind the exceptional nature of the current moment.

Based on the recommendations of the Directorate-General for Health (DGS) for the prevention of COVID-19, the Portugal Film Commission indicates in this document the basic guidelines so that filming in Portugal can take place with the least possible risk.

It is important to note that the document will be subject to necessary changes, whenever there are guidelines from the Portuguese Government that have an impact on the situations covered.
