Media Visa Campaign
While tourists and businesspeople from friendly countries are allowed to stay in the United States for up to three months without a visa, journalists are required to obtain visas no matter how short their stays.
The International Journalism Committee of the Society of Professional Journalists is working to change that. This year, we're planning a concerned lobbying campaign to revise the Visa Waiver Law to include journalists.
