The advice we give all artists is to speak directly with a professional VISA agent and connect with artists that have successfully toured to the countries you are looking to perform in.
Give yourself plenty of time for the application process as it can take months to process.
For artists showcasing at SXSW, the organisers recommend applying for a B visa to mitigate the unpredictability of ESTA. For more information, please consult the SXSW Support website.
Here are some VISA agents that we are happy to recommend, based on feedback from Australian artists that have used their services in the past.
