Visas & Work Permits

What you need to know

Work permits are required in all non-EU countries. Responsibility for obtaining work permits rests with the promoters of the tour in the country abroad.

However, it is likely that either you or your management will be required to obtain any visa associated with the work permit issued in the UK. Be warned! Many acts have been turned back by immigration services around the world for not having work permits.

Ensure you allow plenty of time for your permit applications to be processed.
