    An Overview Of The Immigration and the Global Arts Sector

    Global entertainment, Arts and culture is a massive industry, generating tens of billions of dollars in revenue every year. Immigration of exceptional talent increasingly plays a large role in shaping and enriching the modern creative sector.

    Modern creative projects often take the global talent route, fostering collaboration between diverse, international practitioners of outstanding quality. With increasingly multicultural communities all around the world and the distribution pathways provided by digital technology, embracing immigration creates opportunities both on a local and global scale.

    However, capitalising on these opportunities is not always a straightforward task. The Arts and culture field is not exempt from the same immigration rules and legalities that other sectors face. Indeed, given the short-term nature of many arts projects, there are often very precise visa considerations

    Moreover, the onus for making these visa arrangements can often fall on the businesses organising and producing artistic projects, rather than the typically self employed artists themselves.

    There are different creative worker visa options out there, and various country-specific initiatives designed to help facilitate the international movement of global talent in the Arts. Navigating this space can be extremely challenging, though, and it can be difficult to know the best route to take to make sure you can get the exceptionally talented professional artists you might need.

    Call our immigration team today for assistance.

    Our Global Arts Sector Immigration Services at IAS

    At IAS, we appreciate that no two organisations, or no two projects, are ever quite the same. We understand that your requirements and the challenges you might face can be diverse.

    With extensive knowledge of immigration law and visa requirements around the world, we can help you navigate these challenges and access global talent. There are several services we offer organisations in the creative Arts and culture sector, including:

    Sponsorship Support

    Should you need to sponsor foreign artists, there are specific licenses you may need to obtain. We can guide you through this process and help you prepare sponsorship applications, completing all the necessary paperwork.

    We can also advise you as to your specific duties as a sponsor, according to the relevant immigration laws and regulations.

    Visa Eligibility

    Our legal experts are familiar with the eligibility criteria for a variety of global talent visa types. We can conduct eligibility assessments for any individuals (practitioners, producers, facilitators, or any other Arts and culture professional) who might need to immigrate as part of a project, to determine if they will meet certain criteria.

    In addition, we can provide strategic advice to help effectively navigate the immigration landscape and global talent visa application processes.

    Multijurisdictional Immigration Assessment

    We have immigration lawyers who specialise in the specific creative worker visa and immigration requirements across a broad range of jurisdictions. If you need to move talent across one or more countries as part of your project, we can provide thorough evaluations for moving individuals and/or groups across different jurisdictions, and assist with strategic planning for the move.

    Policy Support

    If you frequently collaborate internationally to access global talent, you may wish to ensure that your organisation’s own immigration policies are robust. We specialise in reviewing, drafting and updating internal global immigration policies. This allows you the peace of mind of knowing that all your operations and internal processes are effective and compliant.

    Compliance Assessments

    If you’re employing foreign workers, sponsoring global talent, hosting international Arts and culture events, or producing work with international talent, then you need to be certain you’re complying with the relevant rules and regulations.

    We can advise on these requirements and help ensure compliance, auditing any potential problem areas and helping to devise solutions. We can also provide comprehensive training on global immigration basics and ensuring compliance.
