New Guide for Musicians and Ensembles Travelling with Musical Instruments

The publication will provide guidance on the Convention of International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), and how it affects musicians travelling with instruments.

‘Crossing Borders: A Guide for Musicians and Ensembles Travelling with Musical Instruments Containing Protected Species’, has been published by the International Federation of Musicians (FIM) and the Performing Arts Employers’ Associations League Europe, and is supported by the Musicians’ Union (MU).

Included in the guide are details on dealing with CITES, including:

  • Identifying what materials are contained in your instrument
  • Checking whether you need a CITES certificate
  • Getting familiar with CITES certificate procedures.

You can read and download 'Crossing Borders' for free from the Musicians’ Union website.
