Entry visa requirements


Working fewer than 90 days?

No work permit required for musicians, ‘whose participation constitutes a substantial or essential part of a noteworthy artistic event.’

NB If an artist is not a substantial or essential part of a noteworthy artistic event the work will require a work permit, even if the work is for less than 90 days. SIRI can, upon request, make an instructive statement on whether or not an artist is a substantial or essential part of a noteworthy artistic event. Requests can be addressed to the Agency via their contact form.
