To carry out professional and commercial film, television, video and photographic activities in the Teide National Park authorisation must first be obtained from the park authorities.

An application form must be completed, which can be downloaded at the end of this text, and handed in together with a photocopy of your identity card, passport or residence card to the offices of the Administración del Parque Nacional del Teide (C/ Doctor Sixto Perera González, 25 - 38300- El Mayorazgo. La Orotava) or it can be sent by mail pnteide@tenerife.es. Contact telephone number: +34 922 922 371.

Once the activity is authorized, the production company will be asked to pay a deposit of between 300 € and 3,000€ that will be returned through a Spanish bank account. ​

In order to facilitate the dealings for both the permit and the security, we recommend production companies from outside the island contact a local production company which is already registered for dealings with the public administration (“alta a terceros”), which will facilitate the process of selection of locations and the payment of the security itself.

Procedure for payment of the security

As you will also be informed by the Mount Teide National Park, once the activity has been authorised, in order to pay the security, it will be necessary to register for dealings with the authorities (“alta a terceros”) at the Tenerife Cabildo in Santa Cruz.

In order to carry out the dealings, the procedure differs according to whether the production company is Spanish or foreign:

  • If the production company is Spanish, you must download the file “Formulario alta a terceros” which you will find at the end of this text. Click here and you will find the instructions for filling it in.
  • For any questions related with the procedure of “alta a terceros”, you can ring the Cabildo information number, 901 501 901.

    We inform you that the necessary basic documentation that you will have to attach for the “alta a terceros” is as follows:

    If you are an individual (original and copy):

  • Certified copy of your National Identity Document, Foreign Citizen Identification Number or Passport
  • Your bank details filled in and stamped by the bank including the signature of the legal representative
  • If it is a legal entity (original and copy):
  • Certified copy of the Fiscal Identification Code and National Identity Document of the representative.
  • Bank details filled in and stamped by the bank, including the signature of the legal representative
  • If the production company is foreign, we would ask you to contact the Tenerife Island Authority (Cabildo) on the above-mentioned telephone number for them to tell you what other documentation you will have to supply in order to get your “alta a terceros”.
