Entertainment Visa Advice 

 

Australia is a major destination for the global media, entertainment and sports industries and provides significant incentives and advantages to encourage the production and presentation of entertainment and sports projects in Australia.

 

Australia attracts a wide range of foreign talent, artists, directors, sportspeople and producers in the entertainment fields wishing to temporarily work in Australia on projects through Australian based sponsor entities.

 

We can assist you through the process of gaining appropriate temporary work visas, such as the the subclass 420 Entertainment visa. While we are not a registered migration agent, we work closely with Registered Australian Migration Agents based in Australia, and U.S. Immigration attorneys and we can advise you on the appropriate expertise in this area.

 

Our services include:

 

  • providing introductions to and assisting in negotiations with key industry bodies including SPAA, Ausfilm, Screen Australia, State government funding agencies, unions, guilds and other representative organisations

  • providing introductions to professional immigration specialists, Registered Australian Migration Agents and consultants

  • assistance with applications for visa, including the Temporary Work (Entertainment) Visa (Subclass 420),  and the various stages of consultation required with the MEAA, certification and visa applications
