The Real Book on Immigration for Musicians

Thursday, March 17
2:00PM - 3:00PM

Austin Convention Center
Room 8C
531 E 4th St

This panel covers in a creative and stimulating way the ins and outs of immigration for musicians. Linda Rose is a noted immigration attorney who focuses her practice on immigration for musicians. She is also a musician, so she knows how musicians think. Dan Kowalski is a highly regarded immigration attorney with years of experience working with musicians. This will not be a hum-drum panel; it will be fast-paced, fun, AND informative. We will cover the various temporary visas for musicians, exceptions to the rules, definition of "work," impact of a showcase, requirements for a "green card," and other immigration issues faced by musicians, their managers, and their band members.
