THE ENTERTAINER’S VISITOR VISA FOR THE UK HAS BEEN REPLACED BY THE STANDARD VISIT VISA. THE INFORMATION BELOW STILL APPLIES BUT THE APPLICATION SHOULD BE MADE FOR THE STANDARD UK VISIT VISA.

You can apply for an Entertainer Visitor Visa to the UK if you:

  • are an entertainer;
  • are from a country that’s not in the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland.

You must be coming to the UK to:

  • take part in one or more specific performances as an individual amateur entertainer or as an amateur group;
  • perform at a major arts festival or cultural event on the permit-free festival list;
  • take part in music competitions;
  • be part of the technical or support staff at the same event as a performer on an Entertainer Visitor visa, eg a sound engineer, tour manager or press officer.

You will only be able to accept payment during your stay:

  • for performing at an event on the permit-free festival list;
  • as prize money for taking part in a music competition.

To start your application, please proceed to the UK visit visa application form or alternatively, read more about the standard visit visa.
