Question for Photographers...Work Permits
Posted 11 January 2008 - 09:10 PM
What has everyone else's experience been on this? I was told at a bridal show this weekend some horror stories and it makes me really nervous to hire someone that doesn't already have the permit.

I have NEVER had a problem. The only issue is how much camera equiptment your bringing PER person. A photographer can not bring more than 2 cameras to mexico, it is in the custom rules on entry, the declaration document that you sign. It is a resale, taax issue not a working permit issue.
The chances of your photographer not getting in to shoot is VERY SLIM. I have never heard of ANYONE haveing a problem and I know MANY photographer working in mexico on a regular basis.
I have shot in The Bahamas, Barbados, Jamaica, Mexico, Scotland, France, Italy, Canada... with no issue.
I would not loose sleep over it but I would make sure your photographer is comfortable with travel work. Some photographers want to jump into DWs because it sounds exciting but in reality it is alot of work, tiring and you end up spending more money on incidental things to get the job done. These little things of safely getting into the country is just part of the experience;-)
Hope that helps, just my point of view.
