On Wednesday 27 September, the Cyprus Council of Ministers approved a filming incentives programme for the filming industry in Cyprus. The programme aims to attract international productions to Cyprus and includes incentives such as:

  • Up to 35% Cash Rebate on films and productions made in Cyprus
  • Tax credit from the Cyprus government for filming in Cyprus
  • Tax deduction on investments in production infrastructure and filming equipment
  • VAT refund for film production in Cyprus

Cyprus is an ideal filming location because of its rich history and culture, varied landscape, short distances, central location, safe environment and 325-345 days of sunshine per year. A large availability of skilled, multilingual professionals and production equipment is available from Moi Ostrov Studio. Our crew members and staff can assist you in English, Greek, Russian, French and Swedish.
