Australian Entertainment Visa
If you are a narrative film, documentary, television, and commercial producer, director or crew member you need a visa to film or work in Australia. 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.
Our expertise includes liaising with the relevant Australian entertainment bodies and unions and attaining certification by the applicable Australian Government Departments. Our industry knowledge and experience help generate quick application turnarounds. We have relationships with Australian-based associates who can provide sponsorship if required and timely advice on any production need that you may have, including recommendations for local talent and crew.
If you have any questions regarding the subclass 408 visa for entertainment work in Australia, please do not hesitate to contact our office to talk with Alberta Miculan. We can do Skype international phone consultations.
Reviews of Our 408 Visa Work
Please read of the reviews of our work, including for the 408 Entertainment visa.
For our big budget co-production it was vital that our key Chinese cast and crew obtain smooth entry into the country. We worked closely with Alberta and Laura in the crucial months of pre production on navigating the complexities of visa applications. They streamlined the process for us and provided the high level consultation that our production required.
Once the first visas started rolling in it was an organised and straightforward process, all monitored by the capable Migration Ways staff. I would highly recommend their services to any production with visa requirements and commend them on their sound, expert advice.
