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.
Please click the appropriate Request a Permit button to get started.
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 stunts or special effects are 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 with the exact wording that will need to go on each certificate will be sent to you.
Feel free to call us at 561.233.1000 or email email@example.com should you have any questions.
Due to public health advisories related to COVID-19, our municipalities and community partners are taking additional care and considerations when reviewing permit applications for approval. While we cannot offer any guarantees on permit requests at this time, we are working with our contacts on a case-by-case basis to see if additional conditions/restrictions applied will allow production to move forward. Thank you for your understanding during this time. The safety and well-being of our clients and community is our top priority.
