Work permit and “professional” status
The legal status of artists has been defined only for the free-lance artists and cultural workers.

In Serbia, artists in performing arts are fully employed. The new theatre law considers the introduction of the new model in which artists will be engaged on the contractual base.
For free-lance artists, the law stipulates that social security and retirement funds are paid by municipalities.
