PortMiami Permit Requirements
PortMiami is owned and operated by Miami-Dade County. The County requires a permit for all commercial filming, still photography, educational films, etc., utilizing County property. Our primary objective is the safety and security of our passengers, tenants, and stakeholders; and keeping our facilities operational and functional.
All proposed film/photo shoots must fill out a PortMiami Request to Film form that is downloadable from our website www.filmiami.org. The form must be sent to our permit coordinators for dissemination to all pertinent PortMiami personnel; including Port Security and the Miami-Dade Police Department (MDPD). This form will include a narrative with a description of the project.
Location scouts after regular business hours and on weekends may be subject to additional security fees.
There will be a required site visit with designated Port personnel, Port Security, and MDPD representatives at least 48 hours prior to production.
No filming is allowed during high volume travel times or holidays.
Please note that it may take up to 14 days to receive approval to film at PortMiami.
All off-duty MDPD officers must be paid in full at least 24 hours in-advance of the production date. Payments are to be made directly to MDPD.
Normal parking rates apply to all production, private, and support vehicles.
