Licence & Permit Fee

The Government has increased the licence/permit fees chargeable under Cap. 560B Entertainment Special Effects (Fees) Regulation for activities related to the production of special effects in film production and entertainment programmes by 11.1% to 14.4% (see Annex A). The fee increase is attributable to the increase in cost for processing the licence/permit applications.

The new licence/permit fees are set out in the Entertainment Special Effects (Fees) (Amendment) Regulation 2019, which was gazetted on 12 April 2019. These new fees have taken effect since 1 July 2019.
