Limited filming permit

If certain requirements for filming on public traffic areas are fulfilled (e.g. team size up to 5 persons, no interference with public transport, etc.) the VIENNA FILM COMMISSION can issue a so called "Limited Filming Permit".

Requirements and restrictions: 

  •  the size of your team should not exceed the number of 5 people (including crew and cast)
  • allowed are only scenes that are qualified as presentations, interviews or the „participation in regular traffic scenes“
  • no actors that can cause the gathering of people because of their celebrity status, which may lead to an interference with traffic
  • you are only allowed to use: camera, tripod and boom (no "heavy" equipment like dolly, lights etc.);
  •  the film shooting should not interfere with any traffic (cars, bikes, pedestrians)
  • no traffic stops
In order to apply for a "limited filming permit", the application form must be completed in full and submitted online. 

If above mentioned conditions aren't met,  a permit from the Municipal Department Traffic Management and Organisation (MA 46) is required. Read more here.
