The Truth About Visas and Work Permits
15:45 - 16:30
DeLaMar Theater (D12 Panel Room) | Marnixstraat 402, Amsterdam
Brooklyn based immigration attorney and lawyer at Tamizdat Will Spitz will provide a brief overview of the US visa process, including when artists do and do not need visas to perform in the U.S., and strategies for avoiding problems. He'll also tackle current issues facing artists performing in the U.S., including the Trump travel ban and the problems artists encountered going to SXSW this past March. He will also be outlining the efforts Tamizdat and other organisations are making to improve the process, including work being done within the U.S. in cooperation with artist mobility advocates in the EU.
