Filming and photo permits

A written permit for filming and photography is not required for the public spaces. These refer to the check-in areas of the passenger terminals and the land areas that are directly connected to the street plan.

A permit must be acquired in advance if

  • you want to operate in the ISPS areas
  • scenes are shot for a film, or similar purpose,
  • if the size of the film crew exceeds five people or
  • special arrangements are needed due to filming.

Filming permits are usually granted for single occasions and for short-term periods.


Charge for filming and photo shoots at Port of Helsinki premises/area is 410,00 € / hour (+ alv 24 %). It includes rental costs, working hours, technical arrangements, safety and guarding arrangements as well as the permit itself.

For the media filming and photo shoots are free of charge.

Filming in the ISPS areas

No permits are usually granted for commercial filming in the ISPS areas.

Access to the ISPS area usually requires the presence of an accompanying person. The accompanying person can be a member of the Port of Helsinki staff or a representative of a company that operates at the Harbour, and they must be aware of the security issues connected to moving about the area.

The permit must be applied well in advance before the scheduled filming, in any case no later than five working days before. Applications presented on shorter notice than this can be accepted only in special cases.

High visibility vests must be worn in the ISPS areas. If needed, these can be borrowed from the gates at the harbour.
