  • Help! Not Authorized For Work - How To Make Money?

    I'm on F-2 Visa; I'm not authorized for work; How can I make money? Is requesting work authorization an option? If not, how can I LEGALLY/MORALLY/ETHICALLY make money without work authorization? Please advise; Thank You

      Without a work authorization, you can't even volunteer at a job an American would do without violating your status (I'm not a lawyer).

      Also, if you do make money somehow in the U.S., you need to report it as income to the IRS. Not to do so would mess you up with not only immigration, but the IRS and possibly Social Security. That's the last thing you want.

        Morally- Get married to someone you love before your visa expires

        Ehthically- Get married to someone you love before your visa expires

        Legally- Get married . have your spouse petition on I765 for you to be able to get your working papers.

        I assume you know all the avenues as to how to get all the illegal work out there.

          You could also change status to F1 and work on campus or off-campus through that visa status. That is, if you want to study full-time. If you already have a college degree, or enough work experience, see if you can find an employer willing to sponsor an H1 visa for you. In the F2 visa status, you are not allowed to work or make money.
