Arts Council England set to assess visa applications from foreign artists entering the UK

Information related to Visas and Sponsorship on our website is out of date – last updated in 2012. Regrettably, Visiting Arts does not have a staff member working in this area currently and we are not available for advice related to visas. A new scheme will see the Arts Council assessing applications from artists applying for a visa to enter this country on the basis of their exceptional talent.
