Child Performer

The basic requirements for parents, guardians, and employers of child performers are as follows: employers who engage a child performer to work in this state must obtain a certificate to employ the performer and parents or guardians must obtain a Child Performer Permit so the performer is eligible to work in this state.

  • To ensure you receive your permit in time, allow 15 days for processing. 
  •  Due to the volume of permit requests, we are unable to honor requests for immediate issuance of a permit. 

All forms, documents, and FAQs can be found below. Any application that does not have the correct attachments may be returned.
