Chapter 4 - Family Members
A foreign information media representative’s spouse and unmarried children (under age 21) may accompany the foreign media representative and be admitted under the “I” nonimmigrant visa classification. If approved, such dependents may attend school in the United States without changing to F-1 nonimmigrant student status. However, the dependents are not authorized to work in the United States while in the foreign information media representative dependent status.
[^ 1] Note that there is no separate classification for dependents of foreign media representative nonimmigrants (for example, there is no I-2 classification). See codes of admission in Chapter 5, Adjudication, Section B, Approvals [2 USCIS-PM K.5(B)].
