India is a land of diversity replete with scenic locations, exotic flora and fauna, and vibrant culture and history. These provide idyllic settings for film making. To promote and facilitate film shooting by foreign film makers in India, Government of India has decided to facilitate a new category of visa - ‘F’ visa to the crew members, including on an ex-country basis. Film Facilitation Office (FFO) under the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting has been mandated to promote and facilitate film shootings by foreign film makers in India.
