Overseas musicians and performers make an important contribution to the UK's creative sector and remain welcome in the UK and take part in events.

Our existing arrangements provide a number of routes for creatives to enter the UK and undertake work on a temporary basis. The Home Office continues to engage with the creative sector to ensure the future points-based immigration system will enable the UK’s cultural life to thrive.
