For those applying for a permitted period of more than seven days, the basis of reasonable estimated shooting period shall be clearly described in the activity project/plan and related documents of proof shall be submitted.
2.Applying to employ less than six foreign extras, application must be submitted two business days before performance; and to employ more than six extras, application must be submitted four business days before performance. If there are missing documents, corrections must be made one business day before performance. The documents that are not submitted or corrections that are not completed within the provided time period will be disapproved.
