The Supreme Council of Antiquities board approved yesterday a 50 percent reduction in fees for the filming of movies and TV shows at archaeological sites and museums all over Egypt starting November 2017.

Minister of Antiquities Khaled El-Enany told Ahram Online that the decision comes as part of the ministry’s agenda to encourage tourism to Egypt, as films and shows depicting Egyptian sites could attract tourists to the country.
