 Filming at MIA

Lights! Camera! Action!

Miami International Airport is owned and operated by Miami-Dade County. The County requires a permit for all commercial filming, still photography, in-flight videos, student films, etc., utilizing County property.

In an effort to inform production companies of filming procedures at Miami International Airport (MIA) and the Miami-Dade Aviation Department's (MDAD) General Aviation Airports (GA), the department has developed the following guidelines:

Filming Permit:
A permit for commercial filming or still photography is a requirement. Request for permits are processed through the Miami-Dade Office of Film and Entertainment.

When production companies or still photographers request to film or photograph at Miami International Airport or its General Aviation Airports, they must contact the Special Events and Conference office, Miami-Dade Aviation Department, at 305-876-0242, in order to discuss details regarding their projects.

Our primary objectives are the safety and security of our passengers and tenants, keeping our facilities operational and functional, while accommodating the needs of the film and print industry.
