I: Journalist

A representative of a foreign information media, including all press media, may obtain an I visa. Spouse and children are allowed to accompany the principal visa holder. The I visa allows admission for the duration of the qualifying employment, but does not allow the visa holder to change from one medium to another, or from changing employers, without requesting USCIS permission.

Good to Know: Free-lance media workers only qualify if they have professional journalistic credentials and are working under contract for an informational or cultural medium.
