Media (I) visas are for representatives of the foreign media, including members of the press, radio, film, and print industries, traveling temporarily to the United States to work in their profession engaged in informational or educational media activities, essential to the foreign media function. While on a media (I) visa, the applicant must perform activities related to coverage of a current event or news or information gathering for a media organization having its home office in a foreign country.
I visa is usually granted for a period of the applicant’s job status, meaning, so long as the applicant is performing their job duties, the applicant may remain in the US.
Spouse and dependent children can also join you on I visa, however they cannot get engaged in any work. If they wish to, then they need to apply suitable working Visa.

I admire the expertise and dedicated service of Visas Avenue. Probably the best Visa Consultancy Services in India. I got my Australian PR visa approval with all the issues with it. It became possible only because of continuous follow up from the whole Visas Avenue team. They not only reminded and updated me about all the documentations and important dates, but also followed my application with authorities absolutely perfectly. I want to utilize your services every time I need a visa for any country. All my friends too, are going to contact you for Visa assistance. Great Client Service Visas Avenue.
Visas Avenue and their team are outstanding and clearly some of the best professionals in the field of immigration. A special thanks to Shivangi Arora (our case manager) for her expert service that helped us get Canadian PR with ease. She has sound understanding of the entire process and documentation. Rajesh Arora is among another knowledgeable, reliable and co operative people in the organisation. They never gave us false expectations regarding the time deadlines and documents. I highly recommend them for their services.
I recently got my Canada PR confirmation, for anyone who is serious about migrating to Canada or Australia I think Visas Avenue is an excellent place to start the journey. As with anyone I had my own reservations about contacting a consultant for my immigration needs, I am currently residing in Singapore but I chose to go with Visas Avenue in India, looking back I think I made a wise decision.Below are the reasons why I would recommend this place :1. My consultant was Ruchika and team, from day one Ruchika and team made sure I am not making silly but costly mistakes while filling up the applications.One thing I admire about Ruchika and her team member Amandeep was their attention to detail. They have an hawk's eye in detecting the seemingly trivial errors in application but those which will have dire consequences if not corrected.2. At no point in my application process I was left alone to fend for myself, each and every part of the process was explained to me in meticulous detail and were closely monitored.3. One of the major advantages of going for this consultancy is I was given prior information about whatever documents that needed time to collect. In this way by the time I was ready to apply I already had all the necessary time-consuming documents (employee reference letter, university transcripts etc.) This way I was able to save valuable time. If not for Ruchika I would have not be able to collectt all the required documents within the 90 day deadline after ITA.In other words once you enter Visas Avenue, you are in safe hands!!
They say, I can work and live in Australia now. It is all because of Visas Avenue. It was all like a relay race in which I was just the first runner. I ran my first 100 meters and then handed the baton over to VA. First came Neeraj. I still remember when I first talked to him. I was so hesitant, so full of doubts that I almost sounded a cynic. And yet he was patient and calm. He listened to me and cleared all my doubts without giving falls hopes. And then came Shivangi, the Anchor leg as they say in relay races. She had to win it for me as Anchor leg wins the medal and Shivangi won it for me. She is a hard taskmaster and assuring you as a friend. Shivangi does not leave any stone unturned. She explores to find the best solution of all the problems. And that is the formula of success, I guess. Now that I have my medal around my neck, I know that if it was not these guys, it was not possible. Just trust them. They know how important it is for you. And they know how to get it. You just need to believe in them and help them building your case. If your case is genuine, they will win it for you. All the best Visas Avenue. Keep changing lives. Thanks!
I got to know Visa Avenue through web search and filled up my online request. Ashwani dialed me at UK and explained me all the Aus PR processing. Initially I was not sure if I should put my step forward but Visa Avenue gave me enough confidence. They processed my case very smoothly and kept me updated on each step of it. The staff of Visa Avenue is really professional and approachable. I never waited in getting response on my queries.I sincerely say thanks to Ashwani, Amy, Rajesh, Erin, Ashmeet & Jyoti for their kind support in my process and wish all the best to Visa Avenue for upcoming future.
My heartfelt thanks to Team VISAS AVENUE ,Specially to Ruchika Sharma. We did some research on major players in India to get the Canada PR but we Zeroed our search on VISAS Avenue. We still remember visiting their Bangalore office to enquire about the Canada PR process,Promita Deb briefed us about the entire process and the applicable charges and then we took a weeks’ time to think and then finally confirmed to go ahead. Later Ruchika Sharma was assigned as our case Manager and I must say that she is very professional, Diligent and patient enough to answer our quires. She has in depth knowledge of the entire process and the time lines. I received Canada COPR for me and my family. I strongly recommend VISA Avenue for the Immigration process. I hope your company continues to thrive and wish all the very best for the future.
I would like to thank Visas Avenue for guiding me in successfully getting my Canadian PR !!!I initially approached Promita Deb from their Bangalore office. She checked my eligibility and gave me an idea about the entire Express Entry process, which actually helped me to make up my mind in applying for PR.My first case manager was Prateek Bhatnagar from their Delhi office. He was very helpful in assisting me to gather the documents in the initial phase.Later on I was assigned to another case manager Geetanjali Bharadwaj to whom I would like to express my sincere gratitude. She is such an expert in the field and resolved all my queries during the course of the ExpressEntry process. She gave regular reminders which actually helped me in submitting my application on time and eventually getting my PR much earlier than i expected. She was very professional and easy to liaise with, which made the entire process seamless. Great work team ! I would definitely recommend your services !!
Firstly, I would say that Visas Avenue were outstanding in their professionalism and business ethic, by the way in which they handled my application from start to finish.From the time that I went to their office to inquire until the time that I received my PR,I have to say that I was extremely impressed with the personal service, efficiency, determination and commitment that Visas Avenue provided to me.They made me feel so confident and reassured about everything, and they kept me posted with any updates coming from DIBP. Kapil, Erin and Ashmeet were exceptional in the way in which they managed my application and I just cannot thank them enough for making mine application a success.Ashmeet is excellent in all aspects but the most important thing I liked is the caring for me as a client. No matter what query and how many times, she replied to my emails and answered calls and tried to help me in each and every thing. I am so glad that somebody like you guys are there to help us in a visa case and we can trust 100%.I will for sure recommend people to go to Visas Avenue and will continue to do so in the future as well. Thank you once again!
