The International Federation of Arts Councils and Culture Agencies (IFACCA) has announced the recent publication of "International visas and taxation : a guide for performing arts organisations in Australia and New Zealand."
Each year hundreds of Australian and New Zealand artists perform overseas. This guide helps them navigate the sometimes complex processes surrounding visas, work permits and taxes when preparing to tour internationally. It examines the current situation in 21 countries in Europe, Asia, Latin America, and North America.
The guide provides links to sources of information, some written especially for the cultural sector and others for a more general audience. It also includes case studies that feature ways in which arts companies and producers actually operate and some of the problems they encounter.
It was produced by the Australia Council for the Arts and Creative New Zealand Toi Aotearoa. It is available on the Australia Council for the Arts website.
