Free One Stop Permitting

Permits are Free in The Palm Beaches

Welcome to the Palm Beach County Film & Television Commission’s free and easy online One-Stop Permitting Process. Permits are issued for public property (i.e. parks, beaches, streets, sidewalks, public buildings) within 50 municipalities, taxing districts, county departments and other community entities in Palm Beach County. Please allow three business days to process a standard permit. If you need a rush permit, please notify our office immediately. Shoots involving road closures, intermittent traffic control, closing off public areas, etc., will take longer to process.  Please see FAQ's for more details regarding insurance for commercial productions in The Palm Beaches.

Standard Permit Request Special Effects Permit Request Student Permit Request

Securing a permit requires a $1 million comprehensive or commercial general liability policy. If you are using any vehicles, watercraft or aircraft in the filming, please consult with our staff to find out what additional coverage is needed. If any stunts or special effects will be part of production, there is a $5 million policy requirement. Depending on where you are filming within the County will determine how many insurance certificates you will need to pull. Once you have filled out the permit application, an email will be sent to you with the exact wording that will need to go on each certificate.  

Feel free to call us at 561.233.1000 or email should you have any questions.

Please be advised that our office does not issue permits for the Town of Palm Beach.
