FILMING IN CAMEROON
Cameroon, French: Cameroun), officially the Republic of Cameroon (French: République du Cameroun), is a country in west-central Africa. It is bordered by Nigeria to the west and north; Chad to the northeast; the Central African Republic to the east; and Equatorial Guinea, Gabon and the Republic of the Congo to the south. Its coastline lies on the Bight of Biafra, part of the Gulf of Guinea and the Atlantic Ocean. The country is sometimes identified as West African and other times as Central African, due to its strategic position at the crossroads between West and Central Africa. Its nearly 25 million people speak 250 native languages.
When planning on filming in Cameroon, there are several factors you need to consider first;
What you’ll need
Before flying in to Cameroon, you’ll need to contact the Cameroon Embassy in your country to get a VISA. There are varying VISA requirements for each country but you will need an invitation letter from a Cameroon based citizen (you can get this from us).
There’s plenty of vehicles for hire that can be organized throughout Cameroon for you and your team.
Cameroon has a range of hotels to meet any budget category. Most internationally recognized hotels are slightly more pricey due to the lack of competition in the local market.
Cameroon Film permits can be organized through an agent such as us, Prokraft Africa. The process takes about a week and you are ready to go.
When planning on filming in Cameroon, you’ll need to clear your equipment with customs. Depending on how bulky the gear is, the crew might need to pay a customs fee on arrival. This is at the discretion of the customs officer on duty. Up to $400.
