What additional information is available about I visa?

The following information is helpful:

  • If you are filming, the film must be of an informational or educational nature. An I visa cannot be used to film material which is used primarily for commercial entertainment or advertising purpose
  • Journalists and media workers may qualify for the I visa, if your government allows for reciprocal visas to American information media
  • I visa is company-specific, so you must be working for a particular organization only. If you have held a prior I visa and are applying again at a consulate, it is not unusual for the consulate to ask for tax returns as proof of where you have actually been working
  • No restrictions are applicable on applying for permanent residence while on the I visa
