In general, applications for special shooting permits should be turned in as early as possible, but are due at least 14 days prior to when they are to take effect. Once applications have been received by the VLB, a minimum of four workdays is required for processing. The BBFC urges you to fill out applications early and in a professional manner to ensure that the shooting schedule run smoothly.
Administrative fees are calculated according to the actual complexity of the permit. Fees concerning traffic regulations are set by the relevant authority according to ordnance and range in cost from 10.20 € to 767.00 € .
The BBFC has created standardized application forms in conjunction with the VLB and other government offices. See Application Forms.
