I Visa: Representatives of Foreign Media
Cleveland Immigration Lawyer
The I visa, commonly referred to as the media visa, is required for anyone
travelling to the United States in order to perform work for the foreign
media. Even foreign nationals who live in countries that participate in
the Visa Waiver Program are required to obtain an I visa, provided that
they are entering the country for the purpose of news reporting and similar
activities. The I visa is required for reporters, film crews, editors,
and individuals working in similar occupations, and it is available to
those who are bona fide representatives of media and whose job activities
are essential to the functions of the media organization.
In order to obtain such a visa, you must submit a Form DS-160, Online Non-immigrant
Visa Electronic Application via the U.S. Department of State website and
must have a valid passport and provide a personal photograph. To prove
your eligibility for the media visa, you will have to provide documentary
proof of employment, such as a letter from your employer, a contract as
a freelance journalist, or a letter from a production company that has
commissioned your project. It is also necessary to provide evidence that
you have a home office in a country outside of the United States. Your
spouse and children under the age of 21 may also be eligible for the I
visa and can study but cannot work during your stay in this country.
