Travelling with musical instruments
CITES
Pearle* has been working on two dossiers related to this topic: Travelling with musical instruments on airplanes and travelling with instruments containing CITES-protected species.

Musical instrument might contain parts of species that are protected under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), such as ivory, rosewood or tortoiseshell. When travelling with these instruments, a musical instrument certificate (MIC) or a travelling exhibition certificate (TEC) might be required.

Travelling without CITES documents can be risky, as customs may seize the instruments and in this way delay travelling schedules.

Over the past years, Pearle* has been working closely with partners in the music sector, including instrument makers and the League of American orchestras to find workable solutions for touring musicians, music groups and ensembles.

When it comes to travelling with musical instruments on airplanes, Pearle* provides guidance for musicians and touring groups on terms and conditions of European airline companies, related to the carrying of musical instruments on airplanes.
