After two years online, South by Southwest is scheduled to finally go live and in person in Austin this March. Unsurprisingly, international industry professionals and musicians have a lot of questions about the legalities of entering the U.S. To help answer some of those questions, Tamizdat have created a set of updated Q&As related to COVID and visa requirements, which you can view on our working overseas page

Please keep in mind, however, that this is intended as general guidance, and not legal advice. Legal advice can only be given specific to the facts of an individual’s real-life situation, so if you have a question, please contact Tamizdat’s Artist Visa Assistance & Information Line (TamizdatAVAIL) for pro bono legal assistance.

Tamizdat is a nonprofit organization that facilitates and advocates for international artist mobility and cultural exchange. You can find out more by visiting their site.
