MEET THE TEAM
Born out of years of experience in the music industry as a tour manager, Andy realised that there was a gap in the market to help this niche group. He discovered many music industry peers struggled to navigate a straightforward path through the visa minefield, and so set up the company.
Putting together a team, Viva La Visa has grown into what it is today with the help of our dedicated visa experts, assistants and runners. Get to know everybody a little more here...
ANDY CORRIGAN has been at the helm of the company since its early guises back in the 90s. A punk legend with a penchant for black and hats, he has travelled the world both with The Mekons and subsequently as a Tour Manager. Andy also specialises in Event Production and Recording.
