Security & Safety

Visa & Insurance

Visa & Insurance

You should obtain insurance from your country of origin which covers you for filming in the UK or Genlock Films can facilitate. This may also give you access to the UK tax credit. Please note that Location agreements and the insurance policy must be in the name of the same company. For example the location contract cannot be in the name of your overseas company and the insurance in the name of the UK production services company.
There are three main types of insurances required for filming in the UK:

Employer’s Liability Insurance

A production company is legally required to take out this type of insurance for all persons it employs. A minimum value of this policy should be £10 million.

Public liability Insurance

The level of cover will need, depends on the type of filming you wish to do, and level of risk that shoot may create. Locations, for instance, will have different minimum requirement levels. Three levels of this policy would be £2 million, £5million and for the highest risk production a minimum of £10 million (such as any major stunt sequences in public places or shooting at the Air side).

Equipment Liability Insurance

If you wish to bring film equipment with you from your country then you should take out an Equipment liability Insurance Policy from the country of origin with a clause of the coverage extending to filming in the UK. All the equipment rental companies in the UK require you to have a UK Equipment Liability Insurance Policy in place before they rent anything out to you. Genlock Films can assist and facilitate you in this matter too.
