Teide National Park
A stage at your level
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. This film permit must be applied for in writing a minimum of 15 working days prior to the start of filming.
An application form must be completed, which can be downloaded at the end of this text. Once you have filled it in you have to go to this link on the Cabildo’s website and attach it in the section “anexos” (attachments) specifying that the space you are applying for is the Parque Nacional del Teide.You can also register your application in person at the National Park’s office: Administración del Parque Nacional del Teide (C/ Doctor Sixto Perera González, 25 - 38300- El Mayorazgo. La Orotava) or at the network of the Cabildo's registration offices. In this case, in addition to the application properly filled in and signed, you also need to add a photocopy of the ID, passport or resident card of the person applying for the permit.
If you have any queries please write to email@example.com or call +34 922 922 371. We recommend you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org after you have applied online to let them know you have sent them an application.
If the activity is approved, the applicant has to take a further step called "Alta a Terceros" at the Cabildo Insular de Tenerife. This enables you to make a deposit that ranges from 300 and 3,000 € to be determined by Teide National Park. This deposit will be returned once the activity you applied for is finished and provided that no damage has been caused to the Natural Protected Area.
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:
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:
