I am an agent for Actors. My client is on a Tier 4 Student

Customer Question

Hi,
JA: Hi. How can I help?
Customer: I am an agent for Actors. My client is on a Tier 4 Student Visa which gives him the right to work 40 hours in non term time. He has booked a job on a TV production which is filming in the UK. My question is can he do this on his UK visa or will he need a Spanish Visa?
JA: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any paperwork with the UK government? What country do you live in? What is your citizenship?
Customer: He is an American citizen with a tier 4 student visa
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer about the tier 4 visa?
Customer: no
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: no thats fine

Sorry its a UK production filming in Spain
Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 12 days ago.

He cannot use his UK visa to work in Spain. He would need a Spanish work visa.

May I help further?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
Is this not different if it is a UK production company?
Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 12 days ago.

That is not relevant, what is relevant that the shooting will take place in Spain.

He would fall under Spanish immigration laws.

All the best. Please click on 5 stars
