Temporary economic legal migration

Pearle*-Live Performance Europe, the European employers federation calls upon the European Commission to address the issue of highly mobile third-country nationals temporarily staying in one or more Member States for the purpose of their professional commitments with EU based enterprises as addressed in the 2020 consultation. This is an on-going issue for the live performance sector, a sector that -by very essence- is internationally focused, where people’s careers are characterised by a pattern of working around the world with consecutive short stays depending on the work, assignments, and project contracts.
For twenty years now issues have been addressed by the cultural sector with EU institutions and repeated time after time in policy papers and research undertaken.
Over the past decades the EU has been shaping visa and migration policies on which it can rely to provide solutions for the specific needs of these economic sectors and put into practice the elements which form the basis of cultural diversity to which the EU adheres.
Europe’s cultural and creative industries represent a turnover of €643billion and contribute 4.4% to GDP. It has 8.4 times more people in employment than the telecommunication sector, but was severely hit in 2020 with an overall loss of 31%.
