The British government has tried to make sure that British artists can go on a visa-free European tour after Brexit, but it says the EU has rejected this proposal. Leave that speaker BBC I know.
UK residents are still allowed to visit the European Union from Friday. However, if they want to do so (within a 180-day time frame) for a period of more than ninety days, they need a visa.
BBC It states that 90 days will be enough for most artists, but this rule is interpreted in different ways by different member states. For example, Spain, Italy and Denmark require work permits from live bands from the United Kingdom.
“The UK pushed for a more ambitious agreement with the European Union that would allow musicians to move more freely in the various member states. But our proposals were rejected.”
Former Culture Minister Nigel Adams has said in the past that it will be absolutely essential for artists to be able to play freely in the European Union after Brexit.
With this apparently unsuccessful, more than 200,000 people signed a petition to allow artists to travel across Europe without a visa. The petition will be discussed in the British House of Commons.
