Free webinar: “U.S. Artist Visas and International Travel in the Age of COVID”

Posted on: September 7, 2021

After more than a year of canceled, postponed, or reimagined performances, U.S. orchestras, arts groups, presenters, and agents have resumed programming and planning for the 2021-22 season—only to find the U.S. is not quite ready to open its borders for all international artists. How to understand the latest visa policies and travel restrictions?

In “U.S. Artist Visas and International Travel in the Age of COVID: Latest Update,” a free 75-minute webinar on Thursday, September 9, experts from Tamizdat and the creators of ArtistsfromAbroad.org—the Association of Performing Arts Professionals and the League of American Orchestras—will describe what it takes to secure U.S. artist visas and navigate COVID-19 travel restrictions right now. They will also cover what the current and long-term policy environment means for seeking more equitable opportunities to support international cultural activity.
