Filming of Movies in United Arab Emirates

Thu Oct 10, 2019 4:31 am

Why has the United Arab Emirates become a popular filming location for movies in the past 10 years, both for movies set in the UAE or set elsewhere. Examples of movies filmed in the UAE include Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Independence Day: Resurgence, Furious 7, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and Mission Impossible: Fallout.

It's safe for Westerners, it has glamour & glitz, and of all the Arab nations it's the most lax in terms of regulations.

A number of major scenes in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol were filmed at the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. Also happen to be the most memorable scenes from that movie.
