The EuroFIA Dance Passport
The EuroFIA Dance Passport is a reciprocal solidarity service that performers’ unions in Europe have agreed to grant to their respective members, assisting them as they temporarily work or seek employment opportunities in another EU member State, in Iceland, Norway and Switzerland. It allows the Passport holder to benefit temporarily from various services offered, at no cost, by the union in the country of destination.

"For a long time, Swedish opera singers have been advocating for clearer guidelines when we work abroad. We are a small nation with a proud singing tradition and a huge percentage of our classical singers active worldwide. To finally have an international network to exchange experience and strengthen our rights in the name of solidarity feels very positive!"
