Visas & Immigration

Every country has different restrictions. When talking to a presenter, ask about visas and immigration very early on in your negotiation process. Sometimes the Festivals have a staff member to support your application, sometimes Festival artists are exempt from Visas, but sometimes Visas can be very time consuming and costly (aka going to the states). It can be worth it to invest in professional help for more complicated visa application processes.
