Visiting Arts was the UK Cultural Contact Point from 2010 to 2013, advising organisations on the EU Culture programme and Creative Europe - find out more.

Getting international artists to the UK can be a complex, difficult process and is one of the main enquiries Visiting Arts gets. Visiting Arts does not have a staff member available for advice related to visas. The UK Border Agency updates its site regularly as legislation and procedures are frequently changed. We suggest that you keep yourself up to date by checking their site during the period of your Visa application process. A handy step by step guide is available here https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/uk-visas-and-immigration

Visiting Arts does not currently award funding to artists or artistic projects. For other sources of funding, please see information provided by Arts Council England.
