The Australian creative and cultural sectors are internationally connected. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are special conditions for entering Australia. To help our arts and screen practitioners get back to business, the Office for the Arts has developed a webpage to serve as a ‘concierge’ to direct those seeking to bring people into Australia to the most helpful, accurate and up-to-date information from authoritative sources.
Australia is an attractive destination for large budget international screen production because of its highly skilled workforce, diverse landscapes and competitive Location Incentive program. International talent can help domestic productions secure foreign investment and distribution. Australia’s live performance sector also benefits from international talent to help secure financing and create profile for local artists.
This purpose-built webpage will link directly to information about how to apply for visas and international travel exemptions, about travelling interstate, and support and conditions for arts events in different jurisdictions. This webpage will assist with business continuity and getting thousands of Australians back into jobs.
