Entertainment 408 Visa for Australia

Entertainment Visa 408

If you are a:

  • narrative film,
  • documentary,
  • television,
  • or commercial

producer, director or crew member you need a visa to film or work in Australia. As do musicians, performers and sportspersons. The Temporary Activity visa, subclass 408, covers “entertainment” workers and sponsors of applicants for this visa.

Migration Ways is experienced in getting talent and crew into Australia. We have obtained visas for many production companies and event promoters based in Australia and overseas.

Producers or directors coming to Australia only for a scout or for meetings can travel more simply on a Business-Visitor Visa.

When you are applying for a visa, you are dealing with a government authority. Honesty is the best policy.
